To follow a dream.
To move forward.
To hope against all loss.
To keep moving forward.
One should not wait for life to be perfect as that seldom happens. Life happens in moments, in tiny increments called today. Hour by hour, second by second. One should not wait for things to change. Make change happen. For me this rings clear. For what I cannot control, I will not sit by and wait. I will focus on that which I can control–my responses, my choices, my thoughts. I will keep making my plans and allow God to direct my steps. Waiting is active. It is not just some passive event. It means moving forward in faith even when things appear the contrary. One should not wait for the perfect mix of ingredients. God so often meets us once we get going–moving forward, taking one step in front of the other. God is with us, and He is for us.
Just a little something to consider for today. Don’t stay stuck.
Hebrews 11 (NKJV)
By Faith We Understand
1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.
3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
