Anything I’ve ever done that ultimately was worthwhile…initially scared me to death.
There are times when I just feel like curling up and staying in my safe and secure place. No worries, no fears, and no challenges can get me there. Sometimes I fool myself into thinking that this safety will give me a real sense of peace, but it really doesn’t. You know why? God wants me to grow in my faith-walk and journey with Him. Did you know that it is okay to be scared? The great thing about this fear is that you are never alone. He won’t let you go. Go ahead; feel scared, I may feel that way when I say to God, “I AM WILLING.”
God will many times push me beyond my comfort-zone. I don’t want to be there, but I am obeying my Lord and Savior. He knows what is best for me, even though I am scared. He reminds me in His Word, “God has not given me a spirit of fear, but one of power, love, and a sound mind.” What a comfort that verse is. Does it always take away the fear? Not initially. When I meditate on His Word, I receive His peace and comfort. I know then, everything will be fine. The only thing I have to do at that moment is trust Him and take the next the step, no matter how timid I may feel inside. Now instead of moving forward with uncertainty, I can walk and be free from the fear within. Thank you God for loving me so much that I don’t have to be scared to death of the unknown.
So, my friends; don’t be timid, scared, or even shy when God is in your formula. Even though you may be walking into the unknown; it really isn’t the unknown because God knows. All you have to do is trust Him, believe Him, and walk with Him hand - in - hand. Can you do it now? For me, I will always say, “I AM WILLING.”
