“Happy work is best done by the man who takes his long-term plans somewhat lightly and works from moment to moment ‘as to the Lord.’ It is only our daily bread that we are encouraged to ask for. The present is the only time in which any duty can be done or any grace received.”
—C. S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
Even as we become people who hold our long-term plans lightly, we may also be standing on tiptoe, gazing into the unknown year ahead. Perhaps for you the coming months will bring a project you’re planning to start, a group you’re prepping to lead, or a new idea you’ve decided needs some attention.
In today’s episode I want to share why it’s important to start before you’re ready, to move even when you’re not sure where you’re going, and how doing the next right thing in love plays a part.
I’ll do that by sharing a story from my own life and, in the process, offering what I hope will be as fun an announcement for you to hear as it is for me to give.
