Easier said then done, right?
Deuteronomy 31:6 "Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you." ... v8 "it is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; He will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed."
Oh how I love these verses! ❤️
I don't know about you but I'd love to be reminded of these words on a daily basis. Maybe I need to write these words on a sign or post it note... This past Sunday in church we were in Matthew 25 in the parable of the talents. It's talking about what we are doing with our talents (which was money in that day), but we can also tie it to our gifts and abilities.
What are we doing to use those "talents" He has given us? Are we scared to go forward and even try? Are we playing it safe? I think of what He has blessed me with and I do have to say fear plays a part. I absolutely LOVE what I feel is a gift from Him... my faith based retreats! I'm passionate about sharing His love with others and connecting people to His Creation and His Creativity! But I have a fear of flying and a fear of speaking in front of big crowds!! So I do need to be reminded of these verses daily. I have been praying BIG prayers over these retreats lately and I know the Lord is stepping myself and my daughter out in faith. What that looks like we don't know yet... but I do know that our Lord God is going before us and He wants us to be strong and courageous.
I hope and pray these words help you also in your journey to step out in faith and use the talents He has given you! Have a blessed day. ❤️
