Now What?

He did it again

He pushed himself into a corner


he keeps it doing the same way~

crawling backwards


that is all he knows.


the look on his face tells it all

that nothing is going to steal his joy

even though he is stuck.

He knows that he won't remain there

because he looks up to his mommy

to whom he knows

will pick him up

and point him in the right direction.


he will try again

and will end up

back to square one

back to the beginning

where he got himself into the same position


now what?

Have you ever been there

or are you there now~

when you

begin again from the same place

but end up back in the same place

back to the beginning

because you keep doing it the same way

because that is how you have always done it

Once Upon a Time ago

and that is the way you are going to keep doing it

expecting different results?

What do you do that pushes you back into a corner,

into the same corner?

To back oneself into a corner~

"to manage to get oneself into a position where there is limited escape."

Pushed into a corner


a place of no return

where you just can't get out of

yet try again


the same way that got you there in first place.

I think that is called


"doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results”.

Now what?

It is time

to have

child-like faith


look up

to the


who will

pick you up

and point you in the right direction

to begin again

to try it

His way

when you

Put Him in Your Story


your way isn't working any longer.

Now Everett will learn how to crawl forward

as he will figure it out

because he is determined to get that toy

that is beyond his reach in front of him

because he can already taste it in his mouth.

He will try

and try



will succeed


his eyes are peeled on the prize.

Will you keep pressing forward and

Put You in His Story?

I, _____________________ , will focus on this one thing:

Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead,

I, _________________, press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling me, __________________. Philippians 3:13-14
