Return To Sender

Today I had the opportunity to sit and ponder where I am in my life and some of the things I have accomplished. There are some things that I did well and there were of course things that I could have or should have done differently. One thing that kept coming up was how much I have started and stopped things God told me to do. Taking an even deeper look I realized that the root cause was fear. But the fear of what?

Fear of the unknown caused me to become stagnant. In essence, it caused me to be in a  paralytic state.  Paralyzed by the fear of rejection, objection, and subjection. I would measure my gifts/talents to gifts/talents of others only to be let down because I did not feel as if I ever measured up to the opinions of others or I viewed certain individuals as being superior to me. 

Dreams halted. Goals ceased being achieved. Peace gone. Faith dwindling away.  This craziness had to stop. Fear is a thief. A robber of peace, dreams, visions, goals, ambitions, faith, and so much more. So now that I realized this….. I couldn’t just sit there…. I had to DO SOMETHING!!!!! I could no longer allow excuses to dictate my destiny.

2 Timothy 1:7- For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 

Now that I know that God did not give me the spirit of fear, I am returning it to its sender, the enemy. So today, I choose not to be a victim of fear.  In fact writing this blog is helping me celebrate being an overcomer. Writing is helping me get my voice back and sharing what I have to say with the world. 

I can no longer allow myself to make commitments to do something and just stop due to fear.

How many times have you made a commitment to do something and never completed the task? What are some things that hinder you from pressing forward?


WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!
