"Start with the 1st step, not the 3rd.
The 1st step is the step you don't
want to take. Take that step."

& in taking that step ..
venturing to

the step of obedience _
with just enough

take that step.

Yes. That first step is the hardest. Reminds me of an old hymn from my childhood. 'Step by step, step by step. I will walk with Jesus. Every day. All the way. Keeping step with Jesus!'

thank you, dear friend. ♥

and deal with in varied form, there's
blessing in the peeling - if that
makes sense. i'm growing in grace. ♥

By walking in faith and being obedient to his word all our answers will be in his love for us. In the dark we are guided by his light amen.
God rises up to greet us when we call upon him by name.

Blessings my dear.

Oh so good and so hard. Growing in grace, what better thing can their be? It can be the hardest thing to take that first step! Trust, indeed.

I'm thankful to know that I am never alone, not just because the Lord is with me, carrying me, but because He's brought sweet sisterhood into my life through you and a few other dear ones. Know that you are not alone either. Being carried to the throne of grace, and walking along side you, even from the other side of the continent.
