Quote of the Month
"I have not given you a spirit of fear, but of Power, and of Love and of a Sound Mind." II Timothy 1:7
As I stand at a crossroads in my life. I am meditating on both of these quotes right now. I can either make a decision to run at the fear and overcome by "doing" or allow it to defeat me by enabling fear to paralyze me to the point of doing nothing.
Over the course of my life, I have developed the bad habit of dulling my shine in order to make other people feel more comfortable. I convinced myself it is better to be in the background than the spotlight, so I've run away from it as hard as I could, even though I was never 100% successful at fading and blending. Now this practice no longer works for me and I have to retrain myself on better habits.
I am grateful that I don't have to be perfect, I can bump my head as many times as it takes to get it...as I am still a work in progress. God hasn't finished with me yet.
