Facing my fears…
As I begin this journey of blogging, it is so exciting because there are so many discussions I want to start and ideas I want to share. This blog is something that has been in my heart for a very long time, and I finally jumped and said it’s now or never. Sometimes you just need to take action, our dreams will remain as only dreams unless we take a step of faith. We have this massive fear of failure that paralyzes us and doesn’t allow us to move towards the vision we have in our heart. It’s effortless to say “why bother, it’s not going to happen,” but faith tells me if I believe it in my heart I will see it with my eyes.
Ask yourself today: is fear keeping you from taking action towards your dream? Think about it, what is that one thing that continually comes to your mind, what are you passionate about, where are your talents, if you could be doing anything what would it be? When you go home at night are you satisfied with what you have accomplished?
The reason I’m asking you is that I had someone ask me those same questions recently. That person told me that life happens so fast that one day you can wake up and 10 years have passed you by, and you didn’t even notice. Today is the day to start walking towards those dreams and goals. Don’t wake up 10 years from today hoping you had done something sooner.
You can do it, God has deposited visions, dreams, and talents inside of you for a purpose.
“The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see. The act of faith is what distinguished our ancestors, set them above the crowd.”
Hebrews 11:1-2 MSG
