Small steps.

This simply means that everything begins with something unimportant, insignificant. To be a great person like most people in the world today and some great men and women in the bible, one has to learn to be faithful in small things. Taking small steps is necessary and a great idea because greatness is a function of small steps taken consistently and continuously in the right direction. Greatness is sometimes hidden in small steps that one takes or refuses to take and it is always better to fail at doing something to succeed than folding our hands and not do anything.

Some people depend on others to make a living instead of taking a small step towards independence. I have seen a lot of family suffer because the head of the home is waiting for a big opportunity to land on his doorstep when he could have start something small hoping and praying for greatness from there.

My advise to everyone today is, don’t fold your hands and watch while others achieve greatness through taking small steps. Don’t let what you can’t do stop you from doing what you can do and don’t also let what you don’t have stop you from enjoying what you do have. Take a small step towards your dream and the end will be greatness for you and your household.

Be blessed and have a wonderful weekend.

This is beautiful. I have heard it said that the Lord helps those who help themselves. I have tried and tried and tried to make a go of getting a job and being successful since graduating college, but I keep having setbacks... mostly medical and car problems, and getting fired from jobs because I was "too slow". I've had lots of people praying for me to find a job, but haven't yet.

Now I think the Lord doesn't want me to have one.
