Faith is bigger than our fear!!!!
This is my first blog of the new year and a lot of things is on my heart and in my mind to blog about, but where do I begin in the year 2021. As I sit here, trying to figure out what I want to write for my blog a lot of things come to mind. Should I talk about my day? Should I give them a story time? Or should I start out with how the first few days of 2021 has been hard for me? What is it that I need to blog about that would make it interesting for my readers to read about? But then I realized the reason I started this blog in the first place. I want to be a blessing to others.
For the longest time I know that there was a calling on my life. I ran from it for so long because I did not understand what it was that I was actually called to do. But then God showed me what He had for me to do. He wanted me to be an inspiration to others. I always wanted to be one of the people that God uses to help the children of God. I want to encourage people who may not have someone in their lives to help them through the rough times. For me, it was, and still is important, because I know how it feels to want so bad to be what God wants you to be, but also feel like you can’t. Its rough. You know what it is that you want to do, but you are afraid of what others might say about you doing a work for the Lord.
But let me be the encouragement that I was called by God to be. Today, I was in Walmart and I had gone to look for a calendar. But when I got inside, I remembered things that I needed to pick up, I had forgot all about getting the calendar As I was finishing up my shopping, I got in line and I realized I did not get the calendar. I did not want to get out of line, because I was next, and I did not want to lose my spot. I was going to just get it on a later date, but I felt like I really needed to go get it. So, I got out of line to go find the calendar.
As I was looking for a calendar, I found a section with journals. I thought it was a good idea for me to get one, to help me keep my ideas and thoughts written down so I would not forget them. I came across one journal with something most interesting on the front of it. It says, “Let your Faith be bigger than your fear”. Oh man that hit me right in my heart.
For the longest time that is the one thing that I wanted to get through to people, but one of the things stopping me from doing what God has placed in my life to do. Fear can be a tricky thing. Often, we get in our minds that we are not able to accomplish things, because we let fear creep in our lives and take over.
But the Bible says “That God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7. We have to take this scripture into this new year, and keep it in our hearts. Whenever we get down and discouraged, we need to remember that our faith is bigger than our fear and that God is by our side every step of the way
Be blessed in 2021. Let’s keep our faith in God high and let us work toward the things he has for us, and not let fear stop us.
