“Suddenly, a fierce storm struck the lake, with waves breaking into the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The deciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!” Jesus responded, “Why are you afraid? You have so little faith! ” Then he got up and rebuked the wind and waves, and suddenly there was a great calm.” Matthew 8:24

I would like to be known as the girl who tried and failed rather than the girl who never tried at all. Let me get out of the boat. Others might watch me sink after taking a few steps, but they will never be able to say that I did not step out . They may highlight my failure of sinking in the water I walked on, but I will be quick to remind them that, at the very least. I GOT OUT OF THE BOAT AND WALKED! My success was not predicated on whether or not I achieved what I was after; NO, it is known by the simple fact that I chose to go after it….

Stepping into new territory or facing big challenges can be a bit daunting and intimidating. But I know that God is the one that is beckoning me forward and helping me to step past the wall of fear and take ground into the new or the next season or place. God knows that I would experience a measure of fear in the face of the unknown with questions of : “What if this fails, What if I fall, What if it does not work…” But God has given us plenty of reminders to be strong, brave and courageous, to be undaunted in the face of fear, reminding us that He will never leave or forsake us…

I don’t know about you, but I want to be the one to take hold of the promises that God has on my life. To not let fear hold me from anything — So this is a little nudge, a bit of a push to get going, to step out. And as you do, and as you confront the new things that has intimidated you, you are going to break past the enemy of fear and you will be amazed that it wasn’t as bad as you thought. The Lord was with you the whole time. He’s the God of endless supply. Yes He is! Hold onto Him. Keep fighting the good fight and preaching truth to your heart.πŸ’• Amen! God bless!
