Small Steps

with one comment

Small steps. That’s what Matthew had to take to recover completely. Since he has been sick for quite sometime, his lethargy contributed to his weakness. And now slowly, he has to work on building up his muscles again. It pains me to see him. After walking for two minutes, he feels so tired. He needs to lie down and rest. From someone who has been so active, traveling to different places to preach. This is suffering… a real trial for us.

I find that it’s the same with everything important in life. If I want to develop a good habit, I usually start by taking small steps first. Until it was something I did consistently. The deep friendships I have did not happen instantly, it was something that matured in time.

Taking small steps is a decision. It’s also called commitment. It also means not giving in to what we feel. But doing what needs to be done because it’s the right thing to do. Based on what our core beliefs are.

Where would we be without our commitments – to God, our spouse, our work, our families, our friends?

It’s definitely not easy. But with God’s help, it can be done. Because it’s the only way to live.
