Take the Risk

Let's take a moment to face the fact that fear is like standing atop a cliff and preparing to jump. Don't your hands sweat and your eyes burn with fear? too.

Recently, I did something that was out of my comfort zone. I went to a writers conference; but fear almost held me back. Now, did I love the time and end up not wanting to leave? Ohhh, yes. But the act of saying I was going-saying I want to write and learn-was terrifying. (Plus, it was in front of people who seemed to know what they were doing. Yikes!). So, I understand why you are sitting here, worrying over not taking that next step, that next PROMPTING from God. You're here because that cliff is looming. But the good news is, you are not alone.

How did I cope? How did I overcome all that fear and anxiety over the next step? Honestly, I never truly overcame that fear of falling and failing; but through clinging to prayer and verses from scripture, I jumped anyway. And never regretted a second. I had friends and family praying for me and pushing me further up the mountain. And you know what? When I jumped, I did not fall.

Not only did that conference encourage me, but it confirmed that the risk had been worth it. So, what do you do when that cliff approaches? That chance? That nudge from God to step out further than you have before?

You take it. You cling to His guidance. And then you shall soar...
