The first step

Every journey begins with the first step. Today is that day for you. Sure, others have had a start before but it’s not the start that earns results its the finish. This day is a gift, from the Lord to you. What you decide to put your attention to, where you decide to spend time? That’s you ONLY YOU.  You are responsible for the result to put it simply.  Ask : Why not?   you want to write a book? Why not?  afraid? Do it afraid but don’t allow the seed of an idea to die in the soil of your life. You were meant for something great. There are people everywhere who have an idea but you could be the first to release it to the rest of us.  Why not? Start that business, write that song, take the first step and walk into your destiny. Watch what happens when you feed that desire you have for making good food and grow that into your restaurant. What if the song you write makes it the top selling and qwells your financial worries. 
  I know, it begins by having enough faith to believe the ground will hold you, for many this is the last stop for many potential contributions to society. Here is where you shift your focus from the ground to your end goal and follow it with all you got because it is not faith in the ground holding you. You have to put that belief that you will accomplish your goal.  Here is the second stop made by those who truly have gifts to share.  They either stop because they don’t believe in themselves or they stop because it is too much work for them to finish and quit.
  Count the cost yes, but to fully invest only to withdraw later is poor management.
Take the step forward and watch the Lord direct your next step.

“Proverbs 3:5
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
7 Be not wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.”


I was a young man who worked for a great organization "Forged by the Sea." Now I'm an old head kicking back on the east side; where the sun doesn't set. I'm a man who is pursuing his contributions to the world. I'm not perfect. In fact, a work in progress until Jesus takes me home. Philippians 1:6
