Are You Ready to Take the First Step?

Are You Ready to Take the First Step?

Enrique Smeke, CSB

What is that first step that will lead us to decide between two choices? How can we take that first step towards a more harmonious relationship with friends or relatives? And, what is that connection with God the Bible tells us we have, that enables us to enjoy a better, more stable health? It seems difficult to break through self-doubts and fears. Sometimes we can’t see how to advance forward; we may feel stuck in the problem.Come hear this talk by Enrique Smeke in which he will show that there is great value in taking a first step towards a solution. When we find ourselves in difficult situations, God is there to support and guide us. And as we look to Him for support, we witness how God unfolds the path to the solution.

¿Está listo para dar el primer paso?

¿De qué se trata esta conferencia?
¿Cuál es ese primer paso que nos llevará a decidir entre dos opciones? ¿Cómo podemos dar ese primer paso para tener una relación más armoniosa con amigos y familiares? Y cuál es esa conexión con Dios que la Biblia dice que todos tenemos, que nos permite gozar de una mejor y más estable salud? Parece que fuera difícil abrirse paso entre dudas y temores. A veces no podemos ver por dónde avanzar o puede que nos sintamos empantanados en un problema.

El propósito de esta conferencia es mostrar el gran valor que tiene dar un primer paso para encontrar soluciones. Cuando nos encontramos en situaciones difíciles, Dios está allí para respaldarnos y guiarnos. Y cuando lo buscamos para que nos ayude somos testigos de la manera en que Dios abre el camino hacia la ansiada solución.

Algunos puntos que resalta esta conferencia:
– Dios mantiene un canal abierto de comunicación con cada uno de nosotros al que todos podemos acceder para encontrar inspiración y progreso en nuestra vida.
– La oración es razonar con el corazón y dejar que Dios tenga la última palabra.
– Cada uno de nosotros hemos sido bendecidos con un único camino en la vida que Dios va abriendo a medida que avanzamos.
