Take That First Step

How long will you wait before you
begin to take possession of the land?
                       —Joshua 18:3

Two things must be done to achieve success and happiness.

  1. You must let go of the past. There is nothing you can do to change it. You may have been through some rough weather: divorce; failure; moral lapse; death of a parent, companion, or child; a bad experience at church. It’s difficult to bury the past, but that is what you must do before you can celebrate the present and happily anticipate the future.
  1. You must take the first step into the future. Perhaps you know what you need to do, but you’re afraid to do it. Do it anyway. The first step is the hardest. God will provide a path if you will trust him enough to take the first step. Success is just a decision away.

You will never arrive if you never start.
