Wow you finally did it! Yes, lately a lot of my close friends have said this to me! and yes, I finally did it… but what did I do? You might ask… well, I finally dare to share my thoughts and expose them for anyone to read… see, I love to read and write, and I have lots of diaries filled with thoughts, tears, crazy stories and testimonies but every time someone will suggest me to put it in a blog my answer was always No way! That’s way to personal… but deep inside I knew that it was deeper than that, and If you read my first blog entry then you can understand why.
This might not be relevant for you, but for me someone who deals with perfectionism; there was never an appropriate time, a good enough picture to reflect what I meant to say or a perfect day to do this, and just like that, 5 years passed… 5 years since I wrote my first blog but it was never published, why? Because I am me… ha! And the ones that know me might be giggling right now… because without the Holy Spirit I am a control freak, A doer, a driven and type A personality kind of girl… and no, I am not proud of it, this has actually cause me a lot of tears and learning lessons. The thing with me is that if I don’t feel like is the appropriate time, the right day or the right season to do it, I just don’t do, say, or act… and like I mentioned above dealing with perfectionism and activism made me believe that it was never the right time, that everything and everyone had to be 100% to make it happen, and that is such a big lie that freezes you! Just like fear, perfectionism has the same power it elevates you in some areas but freezes you in others!
oh, so is this the right time you might ask? No, maybe not lol but what I’ve learned on this journey of “letting go & letting God” Is not about finding an appropriate time but being obedient to Gods time and just act upon it and walk by faith.
I am so thankful for this season, what I’ve learn about my self and God has been the propeller to everything that is coming.
If there is anything I have learned, and I have been impacted by is that God is a God of seasons and we must be smart to quiet our noisy minds, identify our season, accept it and jump, sometimes with fear and doubt other times with confidence, but with an obedient heart. When you hear Gods voice you need to jump! Obedience is an act of faith and if you believe him you need to act!
I don’t know if there are undone areas in your life where God today is telling you go! And your mind tells you no, not yet… it might be insignificant for others but huge for you like learning to dance, learn a new language, exercise, start a business, start a family, quit, change majors, buy a plane ticket, write a book… I don’t know what it is but today on the other side of just “waiting for the perfect time” to do it and actually doing it, I can tell you, It feels so good!
God has given you the capability, the talent but most important a dream that beats inside of you, so dare to act. But first believe that the God you believe in, has believed in you all along. He knows the desires of you heart and when you delight in him and do everything for his glory He will give you what you desire.
What are you doing today on the other side of you comfort zone? it might not be perfectionism, it might be fear or procrastination what ever it is deal with it, ask for help but don’t give up!
What is it that you need to do or act upon that you left sitting in the back of your mind and heart? Quiet your mind and listen to God’s voice saying: what are you waiting for?… do it! …. Nope no buts, just do it! 😊 You can do it!
