As you are climbing your ladder to heaven, you have to take one rung at a time.
As you climb, you get tired. Things get to you. Your body aches. Your spirit grieves.
You must keep looking up and into God's eyes.
If you look down to see where you are or to steady yourself, you may fall and have to start over again. Keep your eyes on God.
He will lift you up and put you right back on the ladder, taking one rung at a time.
