Faith in God is truly a step by step approach. Some steps are a lot easier than others. It is that staircase where we take one step at a time to grow in the Lord and believe Him more and more. Some days I totally miss my step with Him, but He always forgives me and always invites me back to the staircase to try again. One day I will reach the top of that staircase and there He will be, waiting for me to escort me into His kingdom where faith will become sight.
