As I sit here this morning sipping on coffee (yes, I am still drinking decaf) and listening to the sounds of traffic flying past on the highway and the chickens clucking outside my window, I am thinking about the changes that I am about to make. The feelings that go along with these upcoming changes go from excited to overwhelmed to scared…and back again. I think “Have I taken on too much? Can I really handle this? Surely God doesn’t REALLY want ME to do this!” Yes, I know…DOUBT. Why am I doubting myself? Maybe it’s because I have never done anything like this before…fear of the unknown. Maybe it’s because even though hundreds of people tell me that they believe in me and know I CAN, there are a few who say I can’t…why do their words stick with me more? Why do I feel like I need THEIR approval when I have GOD’S!
With that encouragement and the promise from Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future, I am plowing forward and working to make this happen. I KNOW what God has called me to do…have known it for years but have slowly been working towards making it happen. Things are moving…GOD is moving and where He leads, I will follow. I sure hope you all are ready because this is BIG and exciting! I am honored to have you on this journey…Let’s GO full speed ahead!
