Somehow this year started off with my reading list being filled with all forms of motivational works. I had everything from The Alchemist (yes,  I finally read that one), The Best Yes, to The Last Lecture (currently reading).  I've read, since January , seven inspirational/motivational books.  This was not by intentional design, as I get the bulk of my reading from library books that I'm usually on a wait-list for. However, it's been a great treat (as reading usually is) and an even bigger blessing to realize that God has been speaking to me through these books and through other areas of my life as well. His message is just this: That things that I want is already here, I just need to step out in faith and go get it.  I liken it to wanting a glass of water from the refrigerator, the water is there already, you just gotta get up and get it. 

How many of our goals and dreams are just within reach if we only muster up the faith to get them? So many, too many. So today, I'd like to share some of the wisdom I've gathered from my readings with you on stepping out in faith. Here are 5 things you can do to get you going: 

1. Acknowledge that what you want is already here.

This is faith. Hebrews 11:1 'Now faith is being sure of what we hope for, being convinced of what we do not see.'  You've got to trust, believe, and know with every cell in your body that what you want is already yours. It's just of matter of walking boldly and intentionally towards it.

2. Write it down.

Write it down and make it happen (Read that one as well). Putting our dreams into words makes them more tangible, real, and more likely to manifest. You can do this however you want and I recommend that you date it as well. Better yet, look at the next suggestion.

3. Put it somewhere so you can see it daily.

I've framed my goals (in a lovely vintage frame) and placed it on my desk where I see it all day! It inspires me and keeps me focus. I don't have to worry about what I should be doing,  because I have a reminder right in front of me. 

4. Work on it EVERYDAY.

Baby steps. 10,000 hours. This goes by many names and has stood the test of time. Know matter what it is, do something that brings you closer to your dreams each day. Anything!

5. Continually pray about it. 

Communicate with God about it, from the beginning to the fruition. Let Him direct, because when you're not sure of yourself, you know you can be sure of Him. 

With Love,
