The next step....

Faith isn't the ability to believe long and far into the misty future.
     It's  simply taking God at His Word and taking the next step.
                                                                   - Joni Erickson Tada

Tonight, I'm thinking about faith.
And the steps we take.

Sometimes we (ok I) over think things.
I'm learning to not look out far and wide.
But instead, simply take the next step....
...then the next....
...then the next....
Get the picture?

I love this song by Superchick
One More

It really summarizes the thought behind taking one more step.
To not giving up.
To moving forward, even when you want to crawl in bed.
And stay.

But life is more than staying in bed.
Or procrastinating a task.

It's about moving forward.
Facing the mountains and not giving up.

So here's to taking one more step.

One More
By Superchick

It feels like I have lost this fight
They think that I am staying down
But I'm not giving up tonight
Tonight the wall is coming down
I am stronger than my fears
This is the mountain that I climb
Got 100 steps to go
Tonight I'll make it 99

One more
Go one more
Yeah, yeah
Don't stop now
Go one more
Yeah, yeah
One more

Go one more
Go one more
Yeah, yeah

I have everything to lose
By not getting up to fight
I might get used to giving up
So I am showing up tonight
I am my own enemy
The battle fought within my mind
If I can overcome step one
I can face the 99
