Sometimes I hold back from making a decision because I don’t have a plan.  I like to be prepared.  Even if I don’t have it written down I like to have an idea about how I’m going to accomplish something.  I’m not going to do that anymore. 

Don’t let the absence of a plan hinder you from making a decision.  Many times the decision will inspire the plan and prompt the next move.  Even if you don’t know how it will happen…..or completely believe that it will happen……if you can see a glimpse of the possibility……..DECIDE.  Then take the next step, then the next. 


“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” 

 Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Sometimes we won’t know the next step until we decide.

    I once learned a great lesson from the missionary/ speaker, Elizabeth Elliot …her advice …”Just do the next thing.” It’s right along with your words of truth here …simple acts of faith …taking the next step …moving forward 🙂 Thanks !
