‘Hit publish, if you’re feeling brave!’
The words above were the final ones in the online tutorial for using WordPress. I have hit the publish button (several times already) prior to doing the tutorial a few days ago, but today, now that I have read those words and feel there is an expectation of bravery, that goes along with publishing these blogs, I find it harder than ever to get writing.
I would never consider myself to be brave.
It just isn’t a word that would spring to mind if I was asked to describe myself. The thought of things changing around me is often enough to cause apprehension and the discomfort of uncertainty will often cause me to become nervous. My confidence is often left in tatters by something as small as an unpleasant driver pushing past me in a queue of traffic filtering into one lane.
In terms of bravery, I am slow to put myself forward for anything new and reluctant to move out of my comfort zone.
The message from God comes loud and clear! there is no need to be anxious, He has got it all covered.
How ever far away I head off track, in an instance He is there to take me back, how ever I am feeling, he already knows, how ever concerned I become about others, He hears my prayers for them and answers according to His will. When I face new challenges He is with me.
So as another birthday passes, I feel no more confident in myself than when I was 30 years younger, nethertheless I am becoming more and more aware of the greatness of my Father God.
Any bravery that I may display in my life is only because I have a great big God backing me up all the way!
Hope you have His greatness seeing you through each day too!
Every blessing for the challenges you face today.
