I’m still here! And although I haven’t been sharing my heart via the blog, I’ve still been intentional to follow His plan for me. It’s simply led down a path I was not expecting.
Journey with me….
At the end of each year, my husband and I seek God for the one word that will guide the year to come. In November 2016, during my quiet time, God clearly told me to be FEARLESS. I knew exactly what He meant. I’ve shared with you before how each time I am instructed to walk by faith, fear immediately sets in. I come up with every possible reason why God’s instructions seem impossible. There are times I am blatantly disobedient and don’t do what I am told and then there are those times when I do it, but Lord knows I’m scared. I thought doing it scared was ok. I mean, the point is I did it…right? Well, God made Himself crystal clear this time and His words tugged at my heart. It was as if He sat beside me like a caring, yet stern father and said these words…
In the past, I have allowed you to do it scared and you have done well with each endeavor. But My child, I have proven myself to you time and time again. I have never left you. I have never failed you. I have never given you reason to doubt Me. In this new season, you must be fearless. Trust Me. I am with you.
I took a deep sigh and said, “Lord, I trust you.”
From that day to this one, I have chosen to walk fearlessly. In February, I had a fearless tshirt printed as a reminder of my conversation with my God, my Friend, my Father. Soon after, He told me there were others who too needed to walk fearlessly. So I had more shirts printed and today, I can barely keep up with the orders! 😂
Today, I Am Fearless! This does not mean fear does not rear its ugly head. This does not mean His instructions all of a sudden make sense. This does not mean the path I’m on is crystal clear. But it does mean that because He has promised to never leave or forsake me, I will trust Him. I have decided that no longer will fear occupy space in my head when it’s proper position is under my feet. Fear is my enemy and I will use it as a footstool to propel me to heights unknown.
It’s time for you too to put fear in its proper place.
