Ever had that moment in life where out of nowhere you get a rush of adrenaline at like 2 am in the morning and suddenly have the urge to get things done or begin new things 💃🏾. Now, planning is always the easy bit but taking that first step into action is the struggle.
Okay if you are like me and need everything to be like near perfect before you can start something. Then you will know that sometimes this gets in the way because you feel like you’re not in the right mind space yet and need to reschedule everything 😫. This is a serious trap because then you keep delaying and delaying where action is required.
Even the bible stresses the importance of action,
“23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; 24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.” (James 1:23-25)
At times we struggle to plan and do things because of that fear of beginning something and failing.
Word of truth: This was totally me this morning as I struggled to start this post because it’s been a while and I feared to post the wrong thing 😅. But this ended up being my word of encouragement 😊🙌🏾.
God has given you special gifts and talents, don’t waste them by keeping them hidden in fear. This is a difficult lesson I had to learn and still am because I’m a person who likes to do things perfectly, and hence fear and end up delaying where God is requiring me to act. However, nothing can be perfect, we only become perfect in Christ when we follow His will and just take that first step into the path that He has prepared for us.
So let me ask you this what are you delaying from starting? What is it that God wants you to do? and finally what is stopping you?
Whatever answers you have for these questions I want you to decide to START TODAY! Don’t delay, even the smallest step is an accomplishment 💯.
“Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7:24)
Stay blessed in the most stylish way possible, being the you that God made you to be!❤️
