18 May One Step Enough
Arthur Hays Sulzberger was the publisher of the New York Times during the Second World War. Because of all the world conflict, he found it almost impossible to sleep. He was never able to set aside worries from his mind, until he adopted as his motto these five words: “One step enough for me.”
He took the words from the old hymn:
Lead, kindly light…
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me.
Friend, God isn’t going to let you see the distant scene either. So you might as well quit looking for it. God does promise a lamp for our feet, not a crystal ball into the future. We don’t need to know what will happen tomorrow. We only need to know that Hebrews 4:16 promises “we will find grace to help us when we need it.”
