The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, so are you going to let something that happened to you 40 years ago, 4 weeks ago, or 4 days ago affect your step you take today? In every situation there are three factors: the situation itself, the other person and you. Out of those three things you only have control over you…so take that step and don’t let the past determine the future.
Imagine to yourself, Jesus walking over His three and a half-year ministry on earth or the road to Calvary. It is said that Jesus walked around 25 miles a day, and He carried the cross to Calvary which was according to archaeology of the city, the distance from Pilate’s palace through the network of alleys of Old Jerusalem through to Golgotha (The ‘Place of the Skull’) where the Crucifixion took place would be probably less than a mile or two, even considering all the twists and turns of the alleys. In agony, being beat and spit on… He (Jesus) took on step after another, after another knowing what He was walking into..
HIS JOURNEY BEGAN WITH ONE STEP AT A TIME DURING HIS MINISTRY, ENDING WITH LONG WALK TO HIS DEATH… FOLLOWED BY HIS GLORIOUS RETURN.
YOUR JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES HOWEVER HARD IT MAY SEEM BEGINS WITH ONE STEP. THE PRICES OF LIFE ARE NOT AT THE BEGINNING OF THE JOURNEY AND IT IS NOT TO US TO KNOW HOW MANY STEPS IT WILL TAKE TO GET THERE…
SO TAKE THE FIRST STEP.
