“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.






What is faith?  Is it a belief in something?  Is there any tangible evidence of faith or is it just a feeling?

Faith is the exact mix of hope and determination you need at the given moment when required.

 Faith conquers fear, moves mountains, shatters obstacles and grows in strength with steady use.  Take the first steps of faith to reach your goals, you don’t need to see the whole staircase, you just need one step at a time to make progress. 

 The first step is to allow yourself to dream.  Get a notebook, a pad, or a journal and start writing down your dreams.  Don’t put limits on your dreams or judge them, just step out onto the staircase and let the journey begin. 

 What do you want to do? Are there places you want to visit?  Where do you want to be later in your life?  Is there someone you would like to meet?  What kind of lifestyle do you see yourself living?

Choices and decisions, planning, goal setting all come later, for right now, just for today allow yourself the unlimited possibilities and the wonder that comes with dreaming.  Take a mini vacation just for you and enjoy the ride.

  1. Interesting post.
    For me, faith is the light you hold not with your hands, but with your heart. It is the path that doesn’t show you to the truth, but a truth.
    -I hope that makes sense, if at all.

    • That is my definition of hope. The light you hold in your heart. Faith is more of an action word to me. 🙂 It’s all an interesting concept isn’t it? Trying to describe things that are real but not visible.

      • That is right. And what you said there also makes sense, so I guess there is no right or wrong here. Many blessings to you. 🙂
