"The lazy man does not roast what he took in hunting, but diligence is man's precious possession." -Proverbs 12:27
I love the Jordan Sparks song "One Step At A Time". Even if you're not a pop music fan the message is encouraging. When we encounter obstacles in our path, the best thing we can do is keep moving, one step at a time.
Recently our worship director was sharing about how we can get overwhelmed looking at the big picture, when all we really need to do is take a small step towards our goals.
God blesses our diligence; He is moved by our faith. Action accompanies faith.
Matthew Barnett, author of The Cause Within You says, "Never confuse activity with impact." What step can you take toward making a life of bigger impact? Sometimes our dreams and goals can seem so daunting. But we need to start somewhere. Is there a way you can break down your goals into small pieces?
Diligence, patience, and perseverance are what are necessary to keep moving forward. Sometimes this process involves being patient with ourselves. Maybe it involves forgiving ourselves and letting go of past regrets that keep us from seeing the light ahead. Most often, fear stands in the way of the goals and dreams that we want to achieve. But just one step toward our goals can give us the confidence we need to take another step.
Rome wasn't built in a day. Are you able to take just one small step toward your goals?
"The only way we get there, is one step at a time." -Jordan Sparks
