Scared of my own image Scared of my own immaturity Scared of my own ceiling Scared I'll die of uncertainty Fear might be the death of me Fear leads to anxiety Don’t know what’s inside of me Don't forget about me 👄 💣 🖤 #doubt#imgoodwithoutyou
•My heart’s begging for mercy. How much longer can I sit still and be hopeful and doubting and torn inside•
How often do we avoid walking in line with our purpose and chasing our dreams because of... Insecurities? Doubt? Distractions? Naysayers? Uncertainty? Adversity? Fear? ... the list goes on.
Our assumptions and twisted ideas of what will happen if we take flight and chase our dreams often keep us from ever leaving the runway. We are content to go back to our unfulfilling day jobs and lives, even if we are underappreciated, because at least we know what to expect. The illusion of control is more important than the possibility of freedom. Don't you ever get tired of being in bondage? There is more to life than being paralyzed by our fears and feelings of inadequacy. God has promised us peace, protection, and prosperity if we will grab onto our divine purpose with both hands, yet many of us won't embrace it because we are too afraid to let go of our messes. We opt for certainty, even if it's painful.
Today I challenge you to stop wearing shackles when you've got the key in your hand... to choose wholeness and honor the reason you were created. I ask you to follow your dreams and walk toward your destiny in total darkness, and to trust that there will be firm ground under each step you take even though you can't see your hand in front of your face. Yes, it's scary, but those who have made it to the other side will tell you... it's the only way to the Promised Land, and it's more than worth it. . . . . .
LOVE or the lack of love is at the root of everything you see. Its important now friends, with our divided world so caught up in blaming and shaming each other, that we remember LOVE. Love is shed abroad in your hearts by the Spirit of God. Love your neighbor, and love yourself.
