Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Don’t Stop At Chapter One!

The importance of turning the page . . .

Martha L Shaw - Poet, Writer, Artist


When you begin a new book, chapter 1 really grabs you!  It’s exciting, new, inspiring, and fills you with wonder . . . but if you only read and reread chapter 1, it loses something and will soon be none of those things and simply bore and disappoint.  You must go on to the next chapters with their new insights and challenges .

It is equally true whether you are the story-teller or the listener.  Keep going forward, good disciples!  Fear of the unknown . . . giving in to that fear, also means you miss the grace and blessings it holds for you!
