Frozen? Let It Go!

Are you afraid?
Is there something in your life that you feel you should do or say
But you don’t because
You are afraid?

Do you feel a prompt to act or speak
But you are frozen by
FEAR?

Do you look at those around you and think
I wish I was more like her?
She has it all together
She is full of confidence
She isn’t afraid of anything!

Did you ever stop to think that she is afraid?
That she really doesn’t have it all together?
That her heart pounds almost out of her chest at the thought of doing that
One thing?
That she loses sleep at night thinking about how she could have done things differently
Or not at all?

Embarrassment is her middle name
Palpitations are the drumline of her heart
Scared Sweat is the glisten on her skin
And the sour taste in her mouth?
It’s as common as the air she breathes

Do we wait until we are no longer afraid to do the things we know to do?
Do we wait until we’re comfortable?
Do we wait until we’re confident?

How does she do it?
She knows that the gut-gripping fear is not her gift to keep
She recognizes from where it came and refuses to let it rule her
2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline. NLT

We need to step out in faith
Knowing our Father goes before us
Trusting Him even though we can not trust ourselves
Finding our confidence in Him

Life is short
Time is slipping
Deeds need done
People need us
We need each other
We do not have time to sit and wait for the
Perfect
We may be required to do it afraid
Someone is depending on us
