I’m a firm believer in spending enough time with God and being willing to step out in faith to figure out what gifts He has given you. It wasn’t till I stepped out there in my fear and trusted Him to guide my steps that I truly understood who I am in Him. Did my human side mess up some……. absolutely! Do I still mess up some………absolutely! But the difference now is I don’t get all stressed out over it. I trust in my loving, grace giving, mercy abounding God to prepare my next step. He has provided for me a path way to living a full-filling life here on earth and in great anticipation for when I’m with Him for eternity.
So don’t squander your gifts! You have them, you know. They are built into the mold that He cut you from. All you have to do is start stepping out there. Even if you have a little or a lot of fear, know this………… He will provide the way and He will teach you something new with every new step. Don’t fear only trust!
Lord, thank You for giving me gifts that I can use to better your kingdom and helping me get over my fear of failure. Amen!
