Do it scared

Sometimes we just have to take a leap of faith and decide to do that thing we’ve always wanted to do. Even if no one else understands it. Because at the end of our lives it will be just us and God. One of my biggest fears is that I will reach that point in my life and die with my dreams still tucked safely in my heart. I don’t want to be on my deathbed and realize that God created me for more, but I was too afraid to step out of my comfort zone and really live. I want to die one day knowing that I gave my life everything that I had to give. And I want God to be pleased with me and the work that we have done together.

God’s opinion of me and my life is important to me. I want to use all of the talents that He has given me. I don’t want to hide my gifts and not use them. It is a great honor to do the Lord’s work and I desire to do it with my whole heart.

So yesterday, I stepped out in faith and signed up for the classes that I want to take. Right away the enemy jumped all over me. He told me I didn’t have time to take these classes. But I know we make time for the things truly important to us. Time is going to pass anyway. I’d rather be spending my time on things that matter, than wasting it.

In our lives, we are either growing or dying. We don’t just get to stay in the same place. Therefore, I desire to grow. I yearn to become the person God created me to be and to help others in the process. We only get one life, so let’s make it the absolute best life possible. Let’s get as close to the Lord as we can get. Let’s help as many people as we possibly can. Let’s be willing to do whatever He puts on our hearts to do. After all, He is the One who puts the desires in our hearts. And He is also the One who can give us the desires of our hearts. He already has a plan. We just need to step out in faith and trust Him.
