Promise Of A New Day

The distance doesn’t matter; only the first step is difficult.  —Mme. du Deffand—

Life continually presents us with opportunities for achieving what we desire. “Only the first step is difficult.” Each time we sense the possibility of a new direction in our lives, we are being given a chance to grow. Sometimes the first step is a big one; sometimes we start to take it almost without noticing: a dream,

a book, a conversation. Sometimes growth may come from not taking what looks like an opportunity. Whatever choice we make we can be challenged to grow. “The distance doesn’t matter.” Our road has many branching paths. What we work and pray for is the ability to see those paths clearly, and the strength to take a difficult first step. Today my first step may be surrender.
