Although my thoughts on my religion are constantly evolving, I still I still think the Bible is a valuable and interesting book that holds many universal truths.
So if you’ll pardon me, I’m going to ramble for a second.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. – Hebrews 11:1
I love that text. It makes sense to me. And not only because I’m on “Team Jesus”.
Earlier this afternoon I came upon a tweet from Savor the Success featuring this article:
You Already Have What It Takes
I encourage you to click. But if you don’t, the gist of the story is that you needn’t wait to get started on your dreams, your business…your bliss.
It’s like the title says. You already have what it takes to begin.
No ego-stroking intended. It’s the truth.
So what’s faith got to do with this?
I think starting without everything being 100% is exactly where it fits. God (or whatever you call your higher power) gave us the tools to start…WHATEVER it is that’s been in our hearts. He gifted us with our passions. And our desire to use them.
Never mind what’s down the road. We can drive ourselves crazy trying to comprehend unknowns.
And in fact, thinking too much about them can be paralyzing.
What matters right now is that you have the nerve to get going as is.
The challenge, in life, lies in finding the courage…Or FAITH…To persevere.
That’s what turning dreams into reality is all about. You start out with a vision of success involving the things you love. And then take the steps to make them come true.
Right now that’s what I’m running on. Faith. I have no sight. No end product to hold up and say, “See? My hard work is going to result in…THIS.”
I don’t know what’s going to happen. But whatever it is, I expect only good things.
