The Sunday Message

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up…To more than I can be.

-“You Raise Me Up” By Josh Groban

Martin Luther King, Jr., once said, “Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.”

I have stairs in my house. Although I have used them for years, sometimes at night when I take that first step into the dark stairwell, I am cautious and nervous. In my mind I wonder if I am stepping down correctly or will I miss the step and fall into the darkness.  My faith is lacking in that situation.

So I purchased a motion-activated light to help me. Now when I take that step a light comes on and startles me!

Although my “stairs” situation is little different from what Dr. King was talking about, it is important that we stand strong in the faith knowing that God loves us and will take care of us.  I have faith that God will be there even during the darkest times.

1 Corinthians 16:13 (NIV): “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.”
