It's easy to get lost in the shuffle of life, to keep dreaming about what's going to happen some day, how happy you'll be some day, how much skinnier you'll look some day, how you'll write that book some day, how everything is going to fall into place some day.
It's not that we don't want those things today. We do. But pursuing crazy dreams scares the bejebeers out of me.
Oh. You too?
Looks like we're in good company.
Lisa-Jo Baker has been inspiring us this year that #ScaredIsTheNewBrave, Annie F. Downs wore her heart on her sleeve to rally us with the cry #LetsAllBeBrave, and the Declare Conference was all about pushing us toward wild obedience.
God is calling women around the world to step up and move His kingdom forward today. It can be scary. It causes many of us to run for cover. But take heart:
For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. ~2 Timothy 1:7
We're not alone. If you're a believer, that same Spirit who raised Jesus from the dead is alive in you as well! Take a moment to let that sink in.
If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. ~Romans 8:11
What is the impossibility that you are facing? I would love to hear about it and how you are receiving the power of the Spirit to tackle it in Jesus' Name! Leave a comment below or link up a video at onethingalone.com to join our Two Minute Tuesday community.
