Step out on faith…Don’t worry if they don’t know your name…God will show them who you are. We spend a lot of time in self-doubt. We let our fear of failure get the best of us. It is often paralyzing. For me, I have highs and lows. There are days when I am very determined and others when I feel I am not sure which way to go. Fear of rejection can also play a big role in our growth. We often let our perception of how we are received by others determine our performance. Even with putting myself out there through writing, I am often concerned that no one will read my material. I am human. I often become discouraged when I throw my gift out in the universe and it seems that no one is paying attention. I just have to keep reminding myself that I am focusing on the wrong thing. I have to remember that it is not my job to worry about how I will complete my journey. I have to stay focused on the steps it takes to get there. I have to accept the gift God has chosen for me and believe in his power to see it through.
I encourage you as I encourage myself to take steps everyday. Exercise your gift in the best way you know how. Don’t be afraid to open up to the world. It is not your responsibility to figure out how others will receive you. I remember watching a clip with Steve Harvey speaking about jumping so that you can soar!! We have to take a leap of faith and trust that God will catch us. Don’t be concerned with your “BIG” debut, concern yourself with the “SMALL” steps it takes to get there!
