We are made for the extraordinary in some of the most ordinary moments. Years ago, one of my daughters had to re-learn how to walk. The physical therapist started the walking lessons in a pool to make it easier, with less weight on the leg. Even so. It was not only painful, but hard to do. She would stop after each step to look down to see if her leg had done what it was supposed to do. For some reason, there was a disconnection between her brain and leg; she could not feel the leg move, so, she would look down. She barely moved each time. We were all frustrated with the lack of progress.
After a few sessions, the physical therapist figured out what needed to happen in order to walk and said:
Stop looking down, look forward, and you will walk well.
It changed everything. She could walk.
It’s a great life-statement.
There are times when it’s difficult to take one step forward especially when everything seems too hard and downright impossible.
Philippians 3: 12-14 is a reminder to look forward rather than down.
It’s one of the keys to living our best, requiring to make the decision to look forward, refusing to look down at our circumstances, pressing on with a determination to finish the race strong.
It’s a learning process to practice: Stop looking down. Look forward.
