Coming up with ideas for a blog can be hard. You stare at a blank screen, and wonder what exactly to write about this time. You google ideas and then discard them. You look at a list of blog ideas you wrote two weeks ago and decide none of those ideas are very good. Then you have an epiphany and make the decision to write about what you’re going through at this very moment.
As you’ve probably already figured out, the story I’m telling is mine. I wasn’t sure what to write, but eventually an idea came to me, because I just kept thinking about it. Continuing even a simple task can be hard, especially when you feel as though all your creativity has run out. However, persistence is key to seeing things through.
Faith is one area where persistence is key. As Revelation 14:12 says, “This calls for patient endurance on the part of the people of God who keep his commands and remain faithful to Jesus.”(NIV)
There are many stories in the Bible of ordinary men and men used by God for great things. God orchestrated the journeys of these unlikely heroes, but they were the ones who followed Him by taking one small step at a time.
Whatever faith issue you’re wrestling with or task you’re struggling to complete, God is behind you. Just remember, a small step is also a giant leap of faith.
