Big Goals small steps

Do you feel like there's a huge gap between what you are doing now and what you'd love to do? 'Yes, I'd like to be a teacher, but that means I'd have to do resits to get into uni', 'I'd love to start a CU in school but there are no Christian teachers to run it' 'I want to be a full time Christian worker but if I go to Bible college it will take years!' The excuses pile up like dirty dishes in a sink; it feels like it would take too long, cost too much, require too many sacrifices to get from point A to point B. Whether it's going back to school, starting something up or entering the ministry, the temptation is to always put it off until another time. 'Maybe when I've earned a bit of money first, maybe when God gives me a sign, maybe when I'm older'. Maybe, maybe, maybe!
How do you overcome the fear of starting? You reach big goals by taking small steps! While it's tempting to think that the amount of time it takes is too long, those days and years will pass - whether you're pursuing your goal or not! God wants you to take on His call, to show up for duty and leave the provisions - including the time, money, open doors, favourable relationships and material resources - to Him. If you do your part, He'll do His. The Psalmist writes: ' good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly' (Ps 84:11 KJV). Just trust God and take the first small step!
