My Dad has a sign in his garage that says, "you always miss 100% of the shots you don't take." More and more I am seeing how true this sign is to my life. Even though I quote Scripture verses to myself about God's promises and my identity in Christ, I still find myself fearing godly risk. I fear that I will choose the wrong thing, or that what I think I heard isn't really God at all and then In a state of paralysis I replay my Dad's sign in my head over and over again. Do I step out in faith and take the shot or do I stand on the sideline thinking I could never do that? Then I am reminded that God only cares that I take the shot, that I step out, step up, and say, "I am trusting you Lord!" The more we practice this the less risky and uncomfortable it feels and God rewards us with more opportunities to take another shot!
