Many people are not successful in their life because they are not willing to start small. They expect their beginning has to be grand and spectacular. So they are not willing to do small things faithfully. They are not willing to do anything small and they are not willing to make a small step in their life toward their dreams and goals.
Let’s put it this way, when we are faithful to do small things, we will be faithful to do the big things.
People who can be trusted with small things tend to be that kind of people who can be trusted with the big things. What ever we do with $1 bill, we will do the same thing with $ 1 million. If we abuse our $1, we will tend to abuse the $1 million.
We were once babies, the first day we were born, we couldn’t feed ourselves, we didn’t run up and down the stairs, and we couldn’t even change our own diapers. Our parents or caretakers were the ones who fed us, changed our diapers, gave us a bath and taught us how to stand and walk.
I remember the day my baby girl was born; we had to feed her milk every day, 4 to 8 times a day, changed her diapers, and we were excited watching her growing and learning how to stand and walk.
The excitement in your life comes from the fact that there is progress in your life. When you feel like you are progressing in your life, that’s when you feel happy and excited! That’s why it is important to set a new goal after we achieve our previous goal.
We went through a process of growing, from small to big and from big to bigger and bigger.
We learned how to stand with our feet, then walk, and then run! Before our parents had to feed us and changed our diapers, today, you can eat by yourself and even go to the bathroom by yourself when it is necessary to do so.
So don’t be too hard on yourself when things are not going as fast as you want them to be and don’t give up on life when you fail in pursuing your dreams and goals.
A little progress is better than nothing at all. What’s important is, keep learning and keep growing day by day.
I want to end this article by reading you a Bible verse that comes from Isaiah chapter 43:2-3
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the LORD, your God…”
So be willing to start small. Learn more, study more and grow more. You can do it! Remember that God loves you very much and He cares for you!
