I apologize for the late entry and also the light entry. We left Ohio early so I could get back for an appointment. After the appointment I did some office work, we went to the Owen County Fair then came home and vegged. So I am sharing something short and late with you this morning. It is from Bob Goff’s book, Live in Grace-Walk in Love:

We don’t need to have all the information to start; we just need courage to take the first step. Don’t worry about next week’s potential problems. Give today everything you’ve got. Our stories are written as we live, so live fully. Our love is refined as we give it away genuinely, so love the people around you authentically. Let the story you’re writing be a page-turner.

Starting out on a task is hard, especially because we can’t see the end. We have no clue what the future holds (even with a DeLorean). 🙂 But we will never know the impact we may make or the influence we may have or the lives we may touch unless we get started.

“Father, help me to trust you in spite of the fact that I don’t know the end. But you do and that should be all I need to know.”

    I had this conversation with my daughter last night. Can’t focus on the entire project, it can be overwhelming. Focus on the immediate task at hand. Focus on getting the one assignment completed. I am guilty of overthinking as well, so I know where she gets it from. One can analyze a situation forever, but until you take a step and decide to accomplish something, you will be stuck. Good borrowed thoughts this morning, thanks for sharing.

      Thanks Ryan and since I know your daughter I also know she listened and heeded. You are a good father and wise is sharing your advice.

  2. We’re given one journey in this life, Bill. Let’s make it a good one!

    Kind of like putting one foot in the other instead of just standing there…
