Kisses for the Soul

Taking the Initiative
(This is taken, in part, from "The WORD for You Today" - daily devotional that our church is reading.)

You can only pray, plan and prepare for so long, then you must step out in faith and act.

The Chinese say, "He who deliberates too long before taking a step, will spend his whole life on one leg." The reason we never get started is because we focus on tomorrow instead of today. The only time over which you have any control is the present. James wrote, "Look here, you people who say, 'tomorrow we are going to a certain town...We will do business there and make profit.' How do you know what will happen tomorrow? For your life is like the morning fog - it's here a little while, then it's gone." (James 4:13, 14 NLT)
Edgar Guest wrote: "The greatest of workers this man would have been - tomorrow. The world would have known him, had he ever seen - tomorrow. But the fact is he died and he faded from view, and all that he left here when living was through, was a mountain of things he intended to do - tomorrow."
(Added by me) So what is it that you have been putting off until...tomorrow? Take that step of faith, whether it be at your job, in your marriage, friendships, ministry, etc. Don't be afraid. Trust God and He will guide your way.
Remember, He has called you "for such a time as THIS!"
