Small Steps Are Big


“The master was full of praise. ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’Matthew 25:21 NLT

We like to skip the small stuff and move right to the big, don’t we? Small steps take time, and that’s time we don’t want to “waste.” We want to move to the end result—the bigger office, the better promotion, the nicer house that’s not quite affordable…we like to get to the big ending, and the faster, the better.

But lately, I’ve been noticing the small stuff more—the small goals I reach, the quiet opportunities I’ve been given, the small steps outside of my comfort zone that stretch me just the right amount.

Small steps are good. In fact, the smallest steps can be the biggest leaps of faith.

I'm so excited to be guest posting today over at TheLaundryMoms.com! I hope you'll join me there to continue reading my post...Small Steps Are Big!

In Christ,
Laura

  1. I just came from another blogger who wrote on taking a step of faith...a BIG one. My husband and I are seeking God's will for us as we age and deal with finances. We want to obey and it is and will require taking small and big steps. We do not want to shy away from them, no matter the size. Thank you, Laura. I need this encouragement.

  2. Laura, you are speaking my language!! As impatient as I often am with small steps, this is such a HUGE truth I use in team building and in my own faith journey. We learn so much about God in the small steps. I would love for you to share your words on Fresh Market Friday link-up!
