The Sunday Message

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

I have always admired that quote by Dr. King. If you are like me, then you’ve probably found your faith weak at some point in your life – and you knew you needed to take that first step, but just couldn’t.

Sometimes in this life all we have is our faith.

It’s during these times that we need to ask God to help us because we can’t do it alone. God hears from people all the time who wait until things are really bad in their lives before they ask for help.

No matter your situation, the lines to God are always open – so take that first step and ask for God’s help. Help is just a prayer away.
