Hi :) I noticed all of your questions that were asked by you. Para sa akin, the very first thing you need to do is have FAITH. Once you have faith, even if it's just a little, you must make it stronger. Like a little seed of a tree
(do trees have seeds? Depende na), you planted it deeply within the soil, to make sure that the result will have A STRONG FOUNDATION. Then you must put all necessary things for it to grow:water, sunlight,etc. Depending on the TYPE OF SEED, it make TAKE TIME for it to grow into a strong healthy tree. You want to make sure that it won't FALL SO EASILY WHEN THERE IS SOMETHING THAT WANTS TO BRING IT DOWN.
So, my point here is that it takes faith to start everything. That someone will someday recognize that there is a God,who loves him, and he will also want to show that he loves Him back, so he should start obeying His words, even in small simple ways..
