This would be a good outline for a sermon, or for a speech to high school graduates about to set out on life's amazing journey. As you so beautifully pointed out, we can learn from our mistakes and move on and with God's guidance it can be a worthwhile trip even for those with disabilities to contend with. God bless.
This is an excellent devotional.

I'm embarrassed to say this, especially after reading the other two comments, but I don't get "pace". Are you referring to nervous, anxious walking? Or something else? I enjoyed the piece but was then confused by the title and author's note. What am I missing?

Part-way through, I wondered if it might be a computer game, but you led me through to a warm devotional. Thank you, and I like that neat alliteration to close.
I think you did a great job and this piece will certainly help me. I've learned the hard way how difficult it is to pace myself. I either do too much and feel like a slug or overdo (drive to fast) and end up in agony because my body can't handle that fast pace the most people use. It seems like I'm always trying to catch up because I can't find that very fine line between going too fast or two slow. Your little road map has given me such a sense of peace. I know I'm not alone in trying to live with chronic illness. You also showed me that it can be done if I listen to Jesus and allow him to set the pace for me. In HS I ran track and I'd always try to stay in the front of the pack, but soon I tired and my brain screamed at my body that I wasn't ready for that pace just yet. Your story told me that God knows exactly what speed and direction I should be going and as long as I listen to him, I'll make it my destination. Thanks for your insight.

Congratulations on ranking 11th overall. Happy Dance. This story falls into one of my all-time favorites.
