I play life too safely. I used to go places, try new things, but got burned and started playing it cautiously. I don't go out as much and my friends are the same group of people. I admit I am not enlarging my territory or stretching out my tent. I'll risk it. Meet someone new, apply for the great job, play the harp in public. Breakaway from the routine for one day. i am not striving to "be somebody" anymore. i used to not feel loved or approved of, or was looking for attention from the wrong audience. I think I am getting past that, needing that ego fix. Just want to feel the passion again, the passion that I lies dormant, the passion of knowing i am doing God's will for my life at the same time contributing to the betterment of humanity. Live while you're living. Walk while ye have the light lest the darkness falls upon you, for he that walketh in darkness knoweth not where he is going. Walk I say in the light. That's in the book of John. I think that's the first piece of scripture I ever read.

Hi Regina! Thank yo so much for your transparency. i am certain that there are so many Christians who feel as if they do not shine bright enough, walk straight enough, or have a passion for God that burns hot enough. I just want to encourage you that God views you as His masterpiece. From start to finish, all the lines, all the colors added...the entire work of art is in His full view; yet, when He looks at you (above all) He sees His finished product: His masterpiece. I would also encourage you to keep reaching out, continue stretching your tents (so to speak), and yield to God's presence in your life. God bless you, sister.
