I guess mightbe you spoke about this for other things in life but you have REALLY encouraged me. I had just gone on the scale and realised that I HAD to do s/thing about my weight, I was feeling SO down, your talk/words have given me encouragement/hope to do it ''little by little'' - but get it done. Thank you VERY much.

Thanks. Often this valuable bit of wisdom is lost in a wave of fear that all the problems will never be solved, never go away, and even get worse.
But your words ring true. Just as the all mighty created everything one step at a time, so to we should be grateful and enjoy each loving step we take to solve all problems and trust that God will help us.
