Sometimes starting something new is the hardest thing to do. This is true about life, and certainly true about writing. You can start a blog, create a pretty template, and do everything to set it up, but then you need words. And in the search for words you come face to face with the entirety of the dream. You feel like you have to clarify it in your mind, be really clear, and possibly even have an entire road map planned out as to where this all should go. Here Lord, this is my big plan, if could just bless this whole big thing, I’ll get right on my way to making it happen?
All of that planning is enough to stop me in my tracks and end up doing nothing.
So, here we are, on the brink of something new and the Lord is calling me to faith. I do not know the whole picture, and nor do I feel fully prepared, and my dream road map is a crumpled ball on the floor.
But this one thing I know deep in my heart, above all things, and it is this:
God is good. Always.
Every day is we have the chance to begin again. I don’t have a road map, or a guarantee, but I have faith and I can choose to do the next right thing that I know to do. In this case it is publishing this new blog that I have been working hard on behind the scenes. It’s in trusting that God will lead me to my next steps and that my part is to be faithful in the work He has given me to do.
Fresh starts come in quietly starting the work.
