Jacob's Song of the Day (11/02/2015): "One Step at a Time" by Jordin Sparks
Today's song is brought to you by a metaphor/cliche that is often used for anyone that is struggling at the moment. I have selected "One Step at a Time" by Jordin Sparks. Have a listen and read why I chose this song today:
We often talk about our life as a journey, and the need to keep moving forward, the need to keep putting one foot in front of the other. Physically, I'm feeling pretty rough these days. I was really down on Halloween because I really wanted to go out trick-or-treating but could barely stand without feeling like I wanted to fall over. I also can't eat candy (I'm on a strict no preservatives, spices, artifical colorings and flavorings, no-fun-at-all diet), and I can't digest raisins. That doesn't leave a lot of options for people like me! Actually, it gives us no options at all! So I told my mom to take my sister out anyway and I would hand out candy.
Then I decided to take one step at a time. I decided that I wasn't going to let this disease take yet another holiday from me. I quickly assembled a costume and even managed to catch up to my sister.
I was only able to make it to about 8 houses, but that's what taking one step at a time is all about. You need to be able to celebrate the tiny steps forward that you can take.
