Of course, there is. Not sure where to start?

Easy, just take the first step!

Take the first step upwards.

When I felt God’s leading for me to write a book, I didn’t have a clue how to start. I didn’t know anyone who had ever written a book before. I knew nothing about the world of authors and how they even got their books published. Honestly, all I ever did was just read books, that was it.

My mind started racing with questions, how was I going to even do this? Then God gently nudges me, just start writing. So, I started writing in a word document what I felt I should say. This was my first step. I wrote whenever I could and just kept at it.

Then one day I was invited to a Christian ladies meeting and low and behold I met an editor there. She was sharing about what she does in the editing world and if anyone needs any help to come chat to her. Well, I made a quick beeline to her after the meeting. It turned out that she lived in the same suburb as me, just a few blocks from my house. So, we caught up for coffee at a cafe down the road and she gave me all the advice I needed on how to get my book going and edited.

Now let me tell you in all my life I have never met an editor. But now that I needed one, she appeared. She was also a Christian, so this made the deal so much sweeter.

My point being, I took the first step! I started writing. If I never started to write, I would have never needed to meet her. As I continued writing, I needed someone to design my book cover, and God had that covered too. Then I needed a publisher, and God had that covered too. I’ve met all these people who have helped me and as you know I have now published my book – My Journey to Enjoying My life. It is now available everywhere, only God could have done this!

So, my friend how about you? What is it that you need to start doing? You do not have to have all the answers before you start. You do not need to know how it will all work out. But all you need to do is to take step one. Take the first step. Then you will find out what the second step is, then the third and so on. But till you take the first step there is no need for God to show you steps 2, 3, 4 etc.

So, step out, there is something you can do now, even if it’s just research. Take your first step towards your dream, to your purpose. Start your journey, you just never know where it will lead you.
