Am I Ready for Step 4?

The main them of step 3 is approaching the threshold in which we jump off and trust the Lord.  We also surrender to Him and trust that future work with the Steps, even though scary, is for our own good.  It's that simple.

Faith is stepping into the darkness and trusting that the light will follow.

So ask yourself two questions:
  1. Am I willing to nurture seeds of trust within myself?
  2. Am I willing to step into the unknown and trust that the light will follow?
If you can answer yes to both of these questions then move on.  Don't give the adversary time to whisper in your ear such lies as:
  • You didn't do it well enough
  • You will never trust the Lord enough
  • God will not love you
Satan would have us believe these whispering's...  but truly, there is no 'perfect' way to do the steps. You learn what you can, commit to being better and move on.  

Simple.

You also might take time to consider (if you don't have one already) finding a support person that you will need to share your Step 5 with.

This link can help you with that process.

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
