I was reading Warrior Chicks (by Holly Wagner) the other night and these are a few of those words that spoke to my heart—about faith, taking a step and moving forward.
A warrior is one who is engaged aggressively in or experienced in battle. A warrior possesses the dedication that money can`t buy. A warrior is someone who fights, not because of what she is getting out of it, but because of what she can give. A warrior is a soldier with a “die for a cause” attitude. A warrior will do whatever it takes to ensure victory. A soldier signs up to join the fight; a warrior stays until it`s finished.
I am asking you to begin the journey toward becoming a warrior. It is the only way we can win the battles that life throws our way. And you not becoming just any warrior—but a beautiful one. It`s in your DNA.
–Warrior Chicks, Holly Wagner
Sometimes, we go on our lives living just like any other soldier and missing out on who really are. We forget that we are warriors. Brave warriors who are not afraid of making big leaps of faith when the need arises…and taking little steps every day.
But sometimes, isn`t it the little steps that`s harder to take?
Maybe because we think they`re so little and there might not be any fruit. Maybe because our human minds naturally do a lot of rationalizing. Maybe because little steps don`t seem as important as big ones.
Little Steps Waiting For Us To Take
For me, today, taking little steps of faith means answering emails, responding to an invitation to speak, exchanging my comfort to work by faith… forgiving mistakes and giving a hug.
For you it could be making a cup of coffee or writing a letter to cheer a lonely heart. It could be praying for someone, smiling to the fastfood crew who`s serving your lunch, randomly showing kindness, or simply holding a hand. They seem small but they work as big as those which require greater courage…because they are done in faith.
Faith…in big or small acts…is something God honors. Something that makes Him smile. Something that makes an ordinary soldier a warrior.
Because warriors know that there is someone watching over them. Because warriors know that the Lord walks before and stands behind them in battle.
Our commander is greater than anything in the world. Greater than the universe. Greater than our fears. Greater than our enemy. Greater than the ground we set our foot on.
So take that step. Do that little act of faith.
