Few steps of faith equal smooth sailing, but that doesn’t mean they’re not worth taking. Put your hope in the fact that the God who calls you will catch you. – Charles Stanley

Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted, in spite of your changing moods. – C.S. Lewis

Don’t be afraid to step out in faith for God. You will never get to walk on water if you won’t step out of the boat. – Anonymous
