I drew my inspiration from today’s nurture from the Bible story of Peter’s desire to walk on water.
A number of times we want to take action only when we are so sure of all variables involved, even when we know that there will be no time when all things, conditions, circumstances and all people will favour us. We must by now know that trying to wait for the green robots to start off to town is as good as making a resolve not to take any step at all. This kind attitude is a direct contradiction to the attitude of believing; for one that believes has to learn to take a step of faith knowing that He that begun the fight shall surely bring it to an end.
If ever you must achieve your dreams, get your Job, start your business, start your projects, write your book…whatever resolve you have made to undertake in 2012 to take that first step, come out of the boat, for the journey of a thousand miles must begin with the first step. Unless you take that first step, nobody will take the responsibility for you…It’s an expression of your faith.
As you progress through your week and the rest of the coming days executing the plans you have committed to God remember the immortal words of the Great Civil rights Devotee, Dr. King, “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
Keep on keeping on. Nurture your dreams. God bless you.
