What are you afraid of? I read a devotion this morning that asked that question. Are you more afraid of risking it all or wasting your life? Seriously I would have to say both. I have a fear of risking it all and because of this fear, I don’t step out and in return I am wasting my life, my calling, my talent, my gifts. I shared this with my husband and he was so encouraging…He said faith requires action (seriously I knew that, but it goes back the the risk- taking fear). If I say that I have faith that God can do whatever, but I don’t step out to do it, then that means I really don’t have faith. For a long time now I have allowed myself to be tossed around by my lack of faith, but today I am encouraged to step off the shore into the deep.
I have been seriously dragging my feet in a area of my life, out of fear of risking it all. I had hoped for God to make a way, but needed to put my faith in action. With encouragement from my husband, I have prayerfully decided to put my faith in action. This morning I pictured myself stepping out of the boat, with my eyes completely fixed on God…letting Him hold my hand. God and I are on a mission to step out into who He designed me to be!
I am so thankful for a husband who serves God and leads me with Godly wisdom.
Faith is a demonstration….
What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead. Hebrews 11:1 TLB
