"The Fear of Starting Something New"

Have you ever been afraid to start something new? I have plenty of times. I don't know what goes on in my brain when I have a big idea because I always tend to sit on it for a while before making a move. For some that might be bad..but for me that's exactly what I need to do to keep me spiritually and mentally connected with God because... Gods timing is NOT always MY timing!

So, in order for me to make sure that I am not rushing into things, I find myself getting super excited, writing everything I would like to do in my prayer journal and then doing tons and tons of research just so that I can know the ins-and-outs of my idea. Then, I wait for God!

But what I realized, was that my biggest issue was not me coming up with the idea BUT actually moving on the idea and putting it into ACTION! When that time comes I always seem to have some kind of "fear"... it's a fear of not doing it right, it's a fear of rejection and it's a fear of not having everything together even though I prayed about it and waited for God to lead my spirit in taking the leap of Faith! See, that's what I was feeling when I started my blog site...(which I know is nothing but the enemy trying to make me lose confidence in myself!)

So, as I start this new blogging journey I write things in my "Prayer Journal" that remind me that I am not alone and that I can do this.

I speak that I am ready and available for God to use me in any way he chooses!

I speak that I am well prepared and my gifts, talents and abilities will make room for me!

I speak that I am confident, humble and grateful!

I speak that it is my time!

I also speak that anything that I am not familiar with I will be able to read enough books and articles and trust that "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me"!

See, there is nothing that is too hard for me because when I look at all of the other people who are very successful in walking in their PURPOSE and making their dreams a reality...I know that they all had to start somewhere! Anybody who is successful, Anybody who is on top..had to have a beginning! So, this is my "beginning" and with my faith I know that I'll be able to look back on this a few weeks, a few months, and a few years from now and see just how far God has taken me! I Thank God for the courage to step out on faith and start something NEW!
