Take That Step

  
Are you in a moment where you just don’t know what to do? Where to go? What way to go? What choice to make? Is doubt and fear and the naysayers in your ear keeping you from walking in the path you feel God has called you to? 

Quiet the noise around you and don’t follow the crowd- simply follow Christ.

The world will not get what God has asked of you. Many will think you are crazy, but if you truly recognize His voice and He is whispering- Come, this is the way- walk in it! 

You must take that step

 Even in uncomfortable obedience- you must move- walk -step into the paths and plans He has laid out before you.  

Will your feet get dirty- oh Yeah!  Will you have to roll up your pants- you betcha! But the amazing things He has awaiting for you will make you forget all about how busted up your feet are.  

Only when you follow His paths are you able to truly leave a trail, a legacy of good things for others to remember and follow.  

Just keep walking! He is the way- 

            He is the way maker of ALL things.

Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it.” ~ Isaiah 30:21 NKJV

Relationship is the single most important “skill” that each one of us must learn, and the process starts the moment we are born and continues until the day we die. 
It is impossible to master this skill, because it is different with everyone and is always changing! We live and learn and grow and improve and meet new people and have new experiences and all of this affects our relationships with one another! 

 We build our character through the relationships we have with our family, friends, co-workers and everyone we come into contact with on a daily basis. 

Out of all the relationships we have, the one that we must all strive to enrich and grow is our relationship with God. He is the one that matters most and will help us with all the other relationships in our lives. 

 He will give us the insight that we need to “master the skill” of relating with one another.

The bible is the best book to learn and study about how to build great relationships and Jesus is the best role model of all.

So in your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus. Philippians 2:5

So in everything do unto others what you would have them do unto you. Matthew 7:12

Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength, and love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these. Mark 12:29-31 

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
