5:136 – Faith is a single step
#faithbites #faithjourney #faithbiteslite single
During commencement, our keynote speaker shared a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr that touched me and made me think. Dr. King said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.“. I can’t think of a better statement that sums up #faithbites and my #faithjourney. I don’t know what tomorrow brings, heck I wonder about today. But if I didn’t start walking I’d be stuck. For today, think about your relationship with God and your faith journey. Are you walking up the staircase without knowing the end? Are you truly trusting God with tomorrow? IF not, why not?
- Matthew 6:27 – “Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?”
- Luke 12:22 – “Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear.”
- Philippians 4:6-7 – “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
Lord God, help us not to be anxious about tomorrow. Let us be brave, strong, and courageous in you, as we walk through the unknown. We are stepping on a single stair, but we know you have the whole staircase built and going where we need to go. Let us trust in you and not rely on our own understanding. You’ve got today, tomorrow, and forever. We pray this in your name, Amen.
