If It Is Just A Step At A Time

Updated on February 26, 2013

IF It Is Just A Step At A Time

Just a step at a time I will draw closer

If I stay on the right path every day.

Just a step at a time holding your Hand.

I shall not falter nor ever lose my way.

Taking one step at a time I'll be happy

With You walking so close to my side.

Just a step at a time I will never fail,

I will never stray with God as my Guide.

If I take a step at a time people will hear

If they listen to what my heart will say.

I want them all to draw closer to Jesus

Through this step I am taking every day.

Did His beloved Moses have a problem,

Did he stumble over words he tried to say?

Yet he was one of the greatest of all men

Because he was true each step each day.

Each step that I take I'll draw ever closer

If I stay on God's path and never veer.

Each day I'll be closer to the path's end,

And meet again with loved ones dear.

If I 'm faithful I can have a mansion waiting

I can have what I want and not spend a dime.

Forever I can be His faithful loving child

If I just go with Him taking one step at a time !

Clara Kish


The older we get it seems like we are

thinking more and more of what is

ahead of us instead of what is behind .

If we have given our heart to The Lord

He has forgiven us of our sins of the

past and we don't have to dwell on that

anymore. I am sure that we don't want to

meet The Lord taking a bunch of

baggage with us , We would never get

through the gate if we tried to get in

with all of that old baggage we carried

with us before we gave our heart to

Jesus . Now is the time to be getting

ready to make our final journey,and

we must be cleansed and prepared to

go at a moments notice We don't know

when God will call us the day or the

hour ,or if we may just go individually,

We don't know .only God knows but we

must be ready when He calls us !

      One step at a time is great advice for our life's journey as we travel on towards the Kingdom. A lovely poem.

      IF IT IS JUST A STEP AT A TIME A very thoughtful, true message in both the Poem and the message following it. I hope and pray that we can take that step in the right direction and keep thaking that step at a time until God leads us Home. Good to have God walking by our side as we take these steps. Sometimes the steps are slow and sometimes we walk swiftly but as long as we are walking with God all will be OK. Good message in Poem and message. Keep up the good work. Tessie

      Thank You, Karen,I didn't get this on until about 1:00 this morning and I was surprised it was on today , it has been taking a day or two to get them on lately , I don't know why because they did come on the same day ,I guess they have made some changes . I am glad that you like it and understand what I meant ,talking about baggage. I want to get to your hubs and read them , I have before but I am always behind anymore,at 84 my age has really caught up with me now.Maybe when Spring comes it will be better. I forgot you don't have snow where you are,is it warm all the year around there?I think I would like that , not to have snow and ice like we do here.always enjoy your comments ,love,Clara

      Love this Clara! It is really this simple....taking one step at a time each day in Jesus. I tried to portray that too with other words in my latest hub. Walking in Gods Mercy and kindness Part 5....a relating of a trip in my motorhome through a small part of south Africa. Yes, let us leave our old baggage behind. God Bless.
