You ever let fear hold you back from something – something you know you want to do, maybe even something you know you’d be good at.
I’m there right now. There is a career move, job experience I would like to get. One that people have been telling me they could see me in since high school. One I really believe would make my soul come alive…
But, out of fear, I keep making excuses, putting it off.
Honestly, to an extent, I know the heart is there. It involves what makes me come alive: working with teens & young adults.
See, I come alive, my passion is ignited, and I do my best work with teens and young adults. And, I am greatly energized by the school year.
The other side, though, is fear & doubt: not enough education, never done it before, too young, no training, not an expert, “comfortable” where I am…
These doubts have been keeping me from pursuing this avenue for over a year.
But, it’s time – time to just walk out in faith, see what doors God opens up before me. Allowing Him to lead me to the right opportunities and the right people.
So, soon, I will be looking for adjunct professor opportunities: psychology, social services, or general studies.
So, if you come across this, join with me in prayer as I move forward. Pray against fear and doubt. Pray that God will equip the called. Pray that I would be faithful and faith-filled. Pray that I would have an open heart and a prepared mind.
And, let me know how I can pray with you. Do you have a big change coming? Something fear is holding you back from that you want to move forward in/know you’re called to walk in? Let me know below. I want to pray with you too. We don’t have to walk this life alone.
