Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. ~Martin Luther King Jr.~. Finally I found the courage to take my first step. First steps are a very big deal. The first step in any new endeavour is often the most difficult. My humanity, our human nature is susceptible to fear and self doubt, making my blossoming idea(s) open to thoughts like “it will never manifest” or “the outcome won’t be favourable”. This is where FAITH steps in.
But what is faith really? The word faith came from the Old French word “feid” and from Latin “fides”. And as per the internet, It is trust or confidence in a person, thing or thought, and in religious context, one can define faith as confidence or trust in a distinctive system of religious belief.
Let’s now take a look at the best source for the meaning of Faith- the Bible. There are so many verses in the Bible but I’ll just share my favourite hall of fame Faith Chapter. It is found in the Book of Hebrews chapter 11 and the first verse says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” I encourage you to read the whole chapter and be amazed because Faith, righteous Faith produces miraculous outcomes.
These words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. remind us that no matter what we do, what journey we are on, taking the first step is a must. It is not necessary to have all the answers or to know all the steps, just taking the first step is what we should do. My heart is glad that I took my first step of sharing my Faith with you. Hope, Love And Other Possibilities will follow. I invite you to take my hand in every little steps that I’ll be taking starting today. Be with me.
