Have you ever watched a baby take its first steps?
The sweet baby starts off with a tight grip, afraid of letting go. Her feet begin moving forward but she hesitates to release the hand that is holding her upright. Then, she finally does it, she lets go. One wobbly step at a time she begins to move forward, taking tiny baby steps. Then plop, she’s down. Now that she knows she can do it though she wants to try again. Again and again she takes wobbly steps, one foot in front of the other, time after time, until she masters the art of walking on her own. Before you know it that sweet baby girl is running all over, nothing can slow her down or stop her.
The “grip” is different for each one of us. “I don’t have enough time”, “I have already tried everything”, “I’m not sure this is what I need”, fear, anxiety, hopelessness, the list goes on and on.
It is time to let go of the grip and move forward into the amazing future God has planned for you. It is time to get unstuck, to pull up out of the pit and move forward into the full confidence of Christ. Time to move forward, which might mean investing in yourself, which you are not accustomed to doing.
Let me assure you that you are worth the time, energy, expense and effort. It just takes that first baby step and before you know it you will be like the sweet little tot running all over.
If you live in the Bakersfield area I would love for you to join us in Soul Steps as we walk together on this journey towards freedom in Christ one step at a time. The fall session begins on September 22nd (registration closes on September 14th).
As for the rest of you lovelies, I am working on making the course available online, hopefully very soon.
