Quote of the Week-“Faith is taking the…”

Whether you want to write a book, start a blog, quit your job or just do something new in your life, it can be scary.  Change is scary and fear of the unknown can keep people from truly living to their potential.  But Martin Luther King, Jr. had these wise words to share:

Martin Luther King, Jr. faith quote
“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Personally, I like to plan things out, create a backup plan and have everything in order before I do something new and different from my regular routine.  However, life does not always lend itself to the perfect plan and will throw new things in the way to make the plan useless.  That’s why this really speaks to me.  I have had to step out with faith being the only thing guiding me.  Not seeing the whole staircase is scary, but staying at the bottom is even worse.  So today, think about that ‘thing’ you want to do.  That book, blog or big plan you have for your life.  Is there a step to take?  Then take it today.

What do you think of this quote?  Have you taken that first step?
