Do What He Said

Over the past few months, I've been writing out the details of a vision God has given me.  On paper it looks really good, and every time I read over it I am filled with excitement.  However, whenever I think about actually doing it, I become a bit apprehensive.

I must be honest and admit that my apprehension does not come from my inability to do what I believe God is leading me to do, but it comes from a fear of putting my heart out there and no one gravitates towards it.  I keep asking myself, "What if I unveil this project and everybody thinks I'm crazy for doing it?"  Or, "What if I venture out and I have no supporters, and it flops?"  What if, what if, what if...

Though I do not predicate what I do for the Lord upon the acceptance and support of others, I'd be lying if I pretended that it wouldn't somewhat bother me if something I am so passionate about did not reach the hearts of others.  Don't judge me...

So, as I'm giving God all of these reasons and excuses on why I'm not sure about moving forward, He continuously repeats four words to me, "Do what I said."   Nothing more, nothing less.

With that, I guess I have no other choice but to obey my Heavenly Father, and simply do what He has told me to do.  As of now I'm deciding to put my apprehensions aside, and follow God's lead.

In my heart, I really do believe that what God wants to do through me will be a blessing to someone's life, and He will be glorified.  For me, that's all that matters.

Today, I encourage you to not worry about that what if's related to the things that God has placed in your heart to carry out.  Make up in your mind, that no matter what, you are going to do what He said, and continue to fulfill the purpose He has planned for your life.  As long as your primary focus is to do it for the glory of the Lord, you have nothing to fear.

Til we meet, laugh, love!
