If you want to move forward, well...take a step. Everything else will fall in place.
I remember telling a friend years ago after hearing an inspiring message, "Let's get ready for an adventure!"
Certainly spiritual, but also definitely in this world and in this time.
Getting to our God-outlined destination, not by our own route but surely by our steps, guided and sometimes redirected.
I suppose the adventure comes from being willing to simply get out, experiencing things you never thought you would--some bruising, some elating--and discovering more of yourself, God and this world along the way.
Letting it die. The past? The darkness that grips you? Mistakes, missteps, misbehaviours?
If it don't die, then you can't live. Live out loud, that is.
What's in your heart, go out and accomplish it. Even if you aren't sure what it is, go out anyway.
The sun will shine through. Yes it ultimately will. Stormy times, dark times, testing times... Whatever. It will end.
So keep stepping forward. You're one step closer already!
