Yesterday I continued stepping. I was still dirty from the day before and it felt like I was taking one step forward and two steps back. When I looked down to check my step, I saw shiny steel steps opposing my steps!
How did this happen, I wondered. I felt the uncomfortable stares and glares of those going with the flow. Going up the down escalator was not normal nor popular. Going against the flow required more effort just to avoid being sucked down.
I quickened my step against the motorized steps. I moved upward in spite of the escalator’s insistence. It would have been easier to turn around, relax, and go with the flow. I almost gave in, but remembered these words:
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
I followed Him up the down escalator yesterday. I bumped into some, stepped on others, and another almost threw me off, but I kept stepping against the flow. What a test it was!
He did not force me to follow His steps but I wanted to experience His perfect will. Conforming would have been easy, but the transformation was out of this world! It’s good exercise, too!
