Starting Small Is Better Than Not Starting At All

Do you ever feel STUCK in life? Like you just can’t get any traction?
Have you ever struggled with the desire to begin something that you really thought was a good idea?

Do you want to get going but you just don’t know how?

Most people are like this I believe…

In fact… You’ve got something great inside of you that needs to get out to the world…

I firmly believe that every person is a unique expression of God’s love and power on display.

God has created in you the ability to accomplish great things…

Now…with that being said…why is it that more people don’t reach what God wants for their life? I think the entire reason falls to the way we see our self or our situation. We don’t see that things can be different. We want to see God perform an instant miracle. Or, we simply aren’t sure what to do to get started.

People often say, “go big or go home”.

That’s good talk. But everything of significance usually starts off small.

Oak trees don’t form overnight. They start with an acorn. Something so small produces great results over the long haul. Human beings aren’t born as adults, we begin our life in the most fragile of circumstances. Just a little baby that’s totally dependent on every one for every thing.

Starting small in often God’s way.

Instead of fighting against the flow…why don’t we go with it? Why not embrace the fact that God may be doing something in our life that will eventually be great; but for now…it seems so small.

I’m reminded of something in scripture…

Zechariah 4:10 NLT
[10] Do not despise these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.”

Beginnings are a good thing. In fact, God rejoices to see new things springing up in our life. Don’t despise where you are, because where you are is part of the key to get to where you’re supposed to be!

Here’s my take on it…

Starting small is better than not starting all

If you never start…if you never begin…if you never launch…how do you know what might happen?

When you feel that tug inside, pulling you to do something…YOU NEED TO START.

When you sense God leading your life…YOU NEED TO FOLLOW.

When your desire for change in your life is strong…YOU NEED TO BEGIN CHANGE.

So many people have waited, wished, and hoped for better things to come their way…all the while they have a destiny from God living inside of them that just needs to be started.

I have a post about 5 Steps To Trying Something New you need to read that post and make the decision to START!

Why put off what you could start today?

Why wait when things could start working out?

Why not make today the day that you start?

What is it that’s holding you back?

I heard a well known speaker ask this question:

“What’s the thing that we would do for God if we knew we wouldn’t fail?”

What about you…what’s your answer to that question?
