So many numbers scroll through my head like some strange, new number line that only holds meaning to ONE.

2005, 4, 2003, 7, 2001, 9, 2006, 20, 14.5, 10, 1995, 72, 35, 40, 92, 7, 2, 12, 1986, 42, 1990, 1985, 3, etc.

The list could and will go on. An endless array of randomness that is not really random at all. To others it is just a list of random numbers, but to me they represent important memories and moments that have occurred over the past 42 years.

Some bring tears of joy and some bring a sting of pain. The emotions of each number can still my heart. In fact, with some I have to remind myself to breathe. To remind myself that God is bigger than any number. Any emotion. Any breath.

I often get caught up in the numbers of my life instead of living in each moment. So for today I focus on 1. ONE second, ONE minute, ONE day.

Because there will soon be new numbers that will be added to my list. Whether they be full of hurt or full of joy I trust in the One who has walked with me through the others… ONE step at a time.
