People have told me that I’m not worthy of leading a lifegroup or a spiritual blog. I’ve been told my efforts will fail and amount to nothing…die off.
I’ve told myself again and again how I’m going to fail at so many things in life.
Maybe you’re in the same boat I was in. If you are, I encourage you: STAND UP.
Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity. 1 Timothy 4:12
Don’t listen to people, listen to GOD.
We have been called not to live hesitant lives full of fear…holding back from doing what we’ve been called to do, but we have received a different calling.
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline. 2 Timothy 1:7
We won’t know everything…but that’s okay – we’ve got Him to trust. And He can take care of everything :)
So, approach your calling and vision of life that has been given to you by GOD – approach it with INWARD FIRE and PASSION!
So, I encourage you – if you’ve been fearful or confidence-less…look up to GOD. Look up to Him who created you for a purpose, ask Him what it is and run!
Don’t let fear entangle you from the beautiful calling God has given you. Step up, and run. We aren’t perfect – only in Christ are we perfect – so don’t try to fix everything before you run.
“I’m not ready….I’ve got too much stuff to fix first…” No, He will take care of that in the process. Focus on Him – look into His eyes – and RUN!
In addition, many people – like me – tend to fear talking to GOD sometimes for how we’ve messed up. Look at Him and His Love – yes, be in awe of Him and do have a reverent fear of Him, but at the same time, “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” – Hebrews 4:16
Approach the throne of grace – shown through the giving of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, for the payment of our sin and freedom of our souls – approach the throne with confidence; Believing that in Jesus Christ – you are saved. Stand up in this confidence, and do life in worship!
Love. Belief. Passion. Confidence. All for HIS Glory :)
I encourage you
