Where do I start?

20121024-094827.jpg
I see it every time I exit my one and only bedroom. A wooden plaque hangs a few inches above the lightswitch. It simply says, “Faith start where you are and take the next step.”

I heed those words of wisdom on my wall on a daily basis. They are right in front of me. Focusing on what is in front of me now is more beneficial to my well-being and far more important then living life in the rear-view mirror.

Notice it does not say start where you were and just do it again. It also does not say wait until tomorrow and then start. It says start where you “ARE” now.

Do not get stuck in the past, remember the good times and forget about the bad. Today is a new day, rejoice and be glad in it. Take up life in today. Live today to the fullest.

Be kind. Share grace. Show patience with others. Always love! LOVE? Yes…start with love. Love conquers all.

Choose no strife. Have faith that there is a divine plan for you otherwise you would not have been created. Unwrap the plan right now by starting where you are this very minute.

Marching forward NOW brings anticipation, optimism, and great hope. We hope we have a fantastic twentyfour-hour period. We hope we have a wonderful week, an amazing month, and a terrific year. We hope we have a long great life.

This hope only occurs through faith and I encourage you to start your journey of trust right now if you have not ventured out yet to unearth God’s treasures. Look around you and be conscience of all the things and people God has put in your life.
Start exploring today, He will give you answers. Many of those answers will be found in the Bible by the way.

Have faith that the things you need will come your way. Every day is a fresh start. Learn all you can. Be a sponge. Learn from other people. Trust God, know that He is with you right now as you take that next step.

Start where you are. Are you ready? Did you take that first step from where you are right now? The best part is you get to restart it everyday even if you do not have a $7.00 plaque on your wall to remind you. Forward march.
