Let’s be honest, it literally takes one step at a time in moving forward. When we begin our climb, we may not see the end in sight quickly however it’s vital to keep this thought that overtime, “I will reach the end” or “I will get to the top of this mountain.” Soon enough you will recognize that there is an end to everything. When you think about where you are now and where you were perhaps even one month ago, one year ago, or even a decade ago, do you see progression? Do you notice that you have come up a little higher, “so to speak” or do you feel as though the process is going by slowly, in the wrong direction, or maybe not at all? Perhaps you feel like you are living on the pause button. Let’s take a moment to discuss, “Climbing.”
When you live intentionally, you realize that most things do not just happen overnight. You come to understand this will take some time to get there. You recognize there is a process; I must walk out/live out right now. The important part about climbing is that you understand the steps you are taking may not be the same as everyone else. You recognize this is “my journey.” My story is literally being written with every step I am making.
Let’s admit it, on the way, you could find roadblocks and other major obstacles that could try to throw you off track. This can lead you to retreat or even stop you in your tracks. But, let’s be honest here, if you allow that, you are literally giving power over to what is trying to affect you whether it is a person, place, thing or word being spoken. It is important to see all of it for what it really is and not allow yourself to give in to any of these things, so that you are not delayed in moving forward in the climb!
Intentional living and prayerfully seeking God helps you tremendously along the way! Having your mind made up and your heart fixed on purposeful living helps you to gain a lot of ground in your climb upward! You must be aware of negative words and other circumstances trying to discourage you. You must understand that it is important to reflect on where you are and recognize how other influences could be affecting your destiny and purpose!
When you understand that God has created you ‘on purpose’ and ‘with purpose,’ you come to see that there are things that are specifically planned out for you to do. If you are not doing them, you will find yourself not living fully satisfied and constantly feeling like there is more. Once you experience this, you must take some time to pause and see how you can make necessary changes to move forward in the climb in doing what you believe you are called and created to do.
As you take some time to examine this moment, I encourage you to seek God’s guidance and for revelation if you believe you are not living out what He has planned for you. It is in this moment that you pray and allow God to guide you and correct you in the right direction that He has ordained for you to walk in. You might even come to see that you have had the wrong influences affecting your footsteps. Making the necessary changes will definitely impact your climb and enable you to move forward in what you are created to do. I strongly encourage you to get your footsteps on the right path marked out for you; asking God to continually guide you along the way!
Let me hear from you, do you recognize you are in the climb? What changes would you like to work on to continue purposefully forward? Do not allow anything to interrupt you moving forward. Remember, you may have pauses in the climb but they do not have to cause you stop your journey. I love hearing from you. Your stories bring encouragement to others. Thank you for taking moments with me.

I love them all. Sharing w/Jake.
This is such a beautiful post. It’s so important for us to take it one step at a time. Intentional living has its perks but you are right, it also does remove the nativity that things can happen overnight. What’s important though is that you enjoy your journey and celebrate your wins along the way. Thanks for sharing.
this is a wonderful post, Natalie! We truly need this reminder to take one step at a time – i feel i need to have this written on a sticky note on my mirror because sometimes i forget life is a climb & we must not get overwhelmed by the journey. we always make it there in do time. 🙂
