One foot in front of the other

For some reason this song has been running through my head today....

Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you'll be walking 'cross the floor.
You put one foot in front of the other
And soon you'll be walking out the door.

I don't know if there is anyone else
who struggles with
circumstantial paralysis,
but I am prone to it.

Sometimes I get so overwhelmed by all the stuff going on;
that I forget how to walk,
I forget how to stand.

I find myself playing the "girl" card
I cry my eyes out
I lose my breath
I can't put my words together to describe what I am feeling

I know, weird...

I pray like mad, I cry out to God
I read like mad, I hold tight to my Bible
I breathe deep
I sing a praise song
I breathe deep
I find myself in a better place

I put one foot in front of the other....
circumstantial paralysis
is fleeting
My God is not,
He is everlasting to everlasting.

Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd;
I have everything I need.
He lets me rest in green pastures.
He leads me to calm water.
He gives me new strength.
He leads me on paths that are right
for the good of His name.
Even if I walk through a very dark valley,
I will not be afraid,
because you are with me.
Your rod and your shepherd's staff comfort me.
You prepare a meal for me
in front of my enemies.
You pour oil of blessing on my head;
you fill my cup to overflowing.
Surly your goodness and love
will be with me
all my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
