If you don’t take the first step, then you will never take the second.
Every journey begins with the first step. It may not sound all that profound, and is actually rather simple. But it is an indisputable truth.
Sometimes we look at our goals or the end of our journey, and recognise how far they are away. As a result, we refuse to take the first step. Understandable that may be, but it is also illogical. Refusing to take the first step will not get us any closer to our aim.
Take, for example, the writing of a book, or training to become a minister in the church. Such things can take a long time to achieve. We will never get there however if we don’t take that first step.
No matter what God has put on your heart to do, you cannot do it until you start. It may take 100 steps, but you cannot avoid taking the first one. Whatever it is you are putting off, put it off no longer. Take a deep breath, roll up those sleeves, and push that foot forward! It may be a tough road ahead, but if God has called you to do it, you will make it!￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
The first step may be very difficult, but often we find the second step easier than the first.
What are you aiming for? What dreams are on your heart? What is the first step, and can you take it today?
God bless you on your journey, wherever it leads you.
