Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase
Dr. Martin Luther King Junior
This comment is posted here because of a question asked by a friend who is unsure and uncertain about what lies ahead.
Often even when we have goals, dreams and ambitions the first step is the hardest. With Faith even in the first step the Promise has been made that we will not stumble into disaster when we KNOW the Presence of God with us. His Spirit will lead and guide us if the pathway is wrong, re-direct our footsteps.
The stairway that leads HOME is the essence of TRUE FAITH.
The first step is called Salvation – won at a terrible cost yet the first step to a LIFE where acceptance of Jesus Christ and all He lived and died to accomplish assures us that this stairway lead to ETERNITY.
THIS IS FAITH!
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
