Motivational Monday Feb 3 2014 – One Step at a Time

I love the quote pictured below by Lao Tzu.

Sometimes we think so far ahead, get so discouraged by the big picture or so worried about the “what if’s” that we fail to take the first small step.  I sure know I am guilty of this.  I tend to overwhelm myself with the size of a task that sometimes I can talk myself out of even trying.   How about you?

This year I am trying to alter my point of view and put my full trust in God that He will lead me down the path he has chosen for me.

Romans 8:28

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. 

Maybe for you it’s a step toward better health, stronger faith or a personal goal.  Just remember it all begins with a single step.  In what direction will you take that step today?

Have a great week 🙂
