Have you ever been in a place in your life where you knew God wanted you to move forward and you knew what he was calling you to do but but feelings of not good enough and why me enter your head? You have dreams and goals and plans that you know was placed on your heart by God and you can't wait to do them and you are working hard toward them but still something keeps picking at you telling you lies and is doing everything to distract you from moving forward!
If you have, know you are not alone! This may sound weird to some people but the one who is reading this and gets it knows exactly what I'm talking about. I've been struggling with the ideas of what in the heck do I have to offer? I don't know enough? Why me? At the same time I'm having these questions the other part of me just can't wait to get out there and start doing the work God has called me to do. Its a battle in my own head. I don't know why he picked me. I'm so thankful he has has taught me so much about life and myself. He has set me free from bondage and has made me look at myself in more than one way and has taken me to look at myself deeper than I ever thought I could go. He placed this incredible desire to help share my life lessons so hopefully it will help someone else and bring them closer to God. However, I have also begged God to take this desire away if this is not what he wants me to do because I never want anyone to think I know it all or I think I'm better than anyone because I don't. I still have so much to learn. Learning never stops.
He keeps telling me to keep moving forward. He is telling you the same if you listen. He is telling me to stay focused and don't get distracted by nonsense and with things that I have no business having my nose in! To stay focus on him and doing the job he has chosen for me to do. Same goes for you! Stay focus and don't look to the left or to the right because that is what the enemy wants you to do. He also has placed me in an awesome place with incredible people! He is pushing me out there and not letting me hide any longer. I would find excuses why I couldn't do it and now I can't hide any longer! God will do that to you too! He will make you go out there whether you like it or not. He will not let you hide much longer. Seriously, take this blog for an example. I really don't like to write, but he makes me do it to help me get over some crazy fear of mine! Yes, he will not let you hide but get ready he may make you do things you don't like doing because he needs to work on you to get you where he wants you to be.
Stop hiding and stand bold in your calling from God. Don't let anyone stop you and know that God loves you more than you will ever imagine. (that might be hard for someone to understand but when you truly get the love of God, it will blow you away) Give him all your fears and crazy thoughts and know you are worthy of the call not because you say so because God says so! Get out there my friend and do the work regardless and don't let anything get in your way! Don't sabotage what God has planned for your life.
