Stepping Ahead with Faith

The thought for me in Reading Genesis 12 is to just be yourself. We shouldn’t try to be someone we are not. Instead, believe in yourself. Feel comfortable in your own skin. Deceiving ourselves or others never gets us anywhere. This day with God, let us trust in Him and we will be blessed. This poem was inspired with these thoughts in mind. Have a great weekend my friends!

Step Ahead

Step ahead into the future
To build a better nation
Step ahead with faith
With no hesitation

The lack of faith
Gets one off track
We may face difficulties
But know God has our back

He calls us to step ahead
And this requires trust
So get away from the comfort zone
Dream, explore, and adjust

We all have weaknesses
But those who can step ahead
Even while having doubts
Will grow stronger instead

Our courage will affect others
And they will follow our ambition
Let’s be who God made us to be
And believe in the mission
