“Wow I really regret following my dreams and doing what God has put on my heart” – Said no one EVER.
You know that thing that’s in the back of your mind just gnawing at you? That thing that screams you, like this is what you’re supposed to do. But it seems so scary and out of reach that you eventually believe that’s not your calling. But deep down you know. You know. That is your calling, destiny, fate, purpose, life, whatever you want to call it you know that is what you need to do. So you bring it up to someone and they totally shoot it down. Or they just aren’t excited about it as you are and you become discouraged. Well don’t listen to them. Listen to what is driving you crazy and you can’t seem to get it out of your head. Take a leap of faith and just do it. It’s scary, and you might cry. But just stinkin do it. If you put 100% in I know you won’t regret it. This whole blog and youtube thing freaks me out. For real like totally freaks me out and every time I put up a post or a video I get so nervous. The kind of nervous that happens when you’re about to go up in front of a bunch of people and your palms get sweaty, your face starts to feel warm, and you almost back out. But something inside you says no, you need to do this. You can do this. You will do this. Even though I’m scared and nervous I know I’m following the desires the Lord has put on my heart.
I think sometimes people start to believe that if it scares them or challenges them then that’s not the work for them. When in reality if it scares you, then you should probably do it. Now, I’m not saying if jumping off a bridge scares you then go do it. I’m saying that the thing you find so inspiring that you wish you could do for the rest of your life is what you should work for. I know it seems so out of reach and you wonder how you could ever accomplish whatever it is you wish to succeed at. But, what I’m learning is you just need to take one step at a time. Take me for instance, I want to make a living sharing the words God has given me. I took the first step by starting a YouTube channel, then I started a blog, then I bought the domain. It doesn’t have to be a big leap. You’re not going to accomplish it overnight. But each little step is moving forward and as long as you move forward you will get to where you want to go. It’s going to take time but the time will pass whether you start today or not.
I challenge you to really listen to what it is God has called you to do. If you are already following your calling then I challenge you to take it further. What is one thing that scares you but you and everyone around you will benefit from? Do that.
