MOVING FORWARD TO YOUR CALLING IN SPITE OF FEAR
Are you paralyzed with fear?
That is okay.
Like self-doubt, fear is an indicator, telling us what we must do. The more scared we are of somehing, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.
There is only one way to silence that fear: Do it! Do what you fear!
You are the only person who has ever – or who will EVER – possess your combination of attitude, skills, education, passion and temperament. That is an awesome thought. You are literally irreplaceable!
You are very important to the human race!
Are you a born writer? Were you put on earth to be a painter, a scientist, a homemaker, a race car driver, or an apostle of peace? In the end the question can only be answered by action. Do it . . . or don’t do it. But thinking about it without ever taking action will only deprived this planet of your unique gift to the human race.
Consider this: If you were meant to cure cancer or write a symphony or invent something amazing and you don’t do it, you not only hurt yourself, you may even destroy yourself, you hurt your children. You hurt me. You hurt the planet.
God created you for the purpose of making this planet a little bit better. If you refuse to do what you can; you take your God’s name in vain. Period.
Creative work is not selfish or a bid for attention on the part of the actor. It’s a gift to the world and every being in it. Don’t cheat us of your contribution. Give us what you’ve got!
Our calling in this Life is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be. It certainly is NOT our “calling” to avoid doing a bunch of negatively-framed commandments.
God designed us for a Purpose. And He calls us towards it. Our calling is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine; or some vision our parents, teachers, or religion tries to push on us.
Our calling is to find out who we already are . . .and become it.
Our calling is to find out who we already are . . . and become it.
Onward and upward,
