Don’t let this stop you

We should not let our fears hold us back from pursuing our hopes.
~ John Fitzgerald Kennedy

So much of my life was lived in fear. I wasted the first half of it because I simply did not trust God and was led by fear instead of truth.

As I started to lean on Him for the small things He proved faithful and my faith was strengthened.

God placed a hope in me that I would reach people and share the power of his love.

He also gave me a destination. England.

Because He has always come through before, it makes sense that His asking me to leave my job, and trust Him to pay all my bills, while getting me a job in a country I have never been to, would be a cakewalk.

That there would be no fear involved.

But that is not the case. It is scary, All kind of fears want to take space in my head, thereby holding me back from doing all that I have been called to do.

The thing is, I do not listen to my fears, I listen to God. I once read a quote that said Courage is fear that has said it’s prayers.

What a world it would be if we simply prayed every time fear tried to gain entry. If we simply allowed God to lead us into all that He has for us without fear stopping us before we even got out the door.

God places the feeling of hopefulness inside you to allow you to shut out the voice of fear.

Lean into that.

And stop allowing what you see to dictate what God can do in and through you.

God is FAITHFUL he will see you through!!!
