Feeble Arms and Weak Knees
I imagine that there is a hope burning within you. It may feel more like nagging uncertainty much of the time, but if you take a closer look, I think you’ll find that at its root it is a hope for something better paired with a question about whether that hope is unfounded.
There is a place you’re trying to get to or at least a direction you wish to move in and you interpret everything around you as evidence in support of, or against, the hope that you can actually get there.
Let me address one bit of evidence that we do not want to misinterpret.
Surely the going wouldn’t be so tough if you were meant to travel this road. If you were capable of getting to your destination your strides wouldn’t seem so pitiful, right? The heroes who blazed this trail couldn’t have felt so weak, right? Wrong!
Make no mistake, the feeble limbs are part of the journey. They need to be strengthened. So, see it for what it is and embrace it. It is a sign that you are on your way.
