Stepping into the Arms

Yay!

You can do it!

Come on, my child!

Way to go!

Oops, that’s ok. Try again!

I’m right here!

 Why am I saying all these things lately? Well, my baby is learning to walk. It really does seem like just yesterday he was born. And now, he stands, arms out, big smile, and takes a step.

I cheer and cheer for him, and boom! He falls. But right back up he stands, and ready to try again. Oops, another fall, and the cycle continues.

Progress is made, and each time, I am there cheering for him, waiting for him, catching him when he falls, and helping him get back up.

Does this sound familiar to anyone else, only perhaps in a different scenario? How about our walk with Christ? Me, me! Isn’t this just how our Father loves us?

As I’ve been cheering for my baby, I’ve also been feeling the Holy Spirit nudge me…harder and harder. You see, I’ve felt led for months to start writing. Now, I’ve never seen myself as a writer. It isn’t something that I’ve found myself gifted in or really even called to do…until recently.

 “But God, I don’t know HOW to write.”

“But God, I don’t know WHAT to say.”

“But God, what will PEOPLE say??”

His scripture speaks truth to my fears.

Hebrews 13:5-6, 21

“…I will never fail you. I will never abandon you…The Lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?

“…May he equip you with all you need for doing his will. May he produce in you through the power of Jesus Christ every good thing that is pleasing to him. All glory to him forever and ever! Amen.”

 While I may not FEEL like a writer, or may be very new to blogging, God wants to use me. He uses me in ways I never imagined possible. How can I say NO to that?

Well, I have been. I’ve been delaying and delaying because I don’t want to fall. But then I’m reminded that HE IS THERE! He is there cheering.

 

Yay!

You can do it!

Come on, my child!

Way to go!

Oops, that’s ok. Try again!

I’m right here!

 

How many of you feel that nudge? Perhaps you feel like God is calling YOU to be courageous. How does He want to use you? Isn’t that exciting!

God has given us all gifts. He designed us exactly how HE wants us. Let’s be who He wants us to be! Let’s be the light. Let’s show love. Let’s glorify Him! We don’t have to have all the answers, when we have Christ.

I have a passion for encouraging others in their walk with Christ, their journey to great health and their overall happiness. While I am not perfect, I’m excellent in my Father’s eyes.

And, with Him cheering for me and holding out His hand, I’m ready to take the next step!  I choose to be obedient and to trust the path that He is guiding me through. I know He will catch me when I fall, and be there cheering for me over and over again. Taking baby steps

    What a blessing to read your words and know that God is using you to encourage us to seek the truth of our destinies and then have that courage to take the first step.

    I just today had a discussion about what stops us from sharing the Gospel with others. I had to be honest and said I was afraid of rejection and what others would think. Sad to hear myself say this but we then followed in prayer and my prayer was to be more of a Christ pleaser and worry less about being a people pleaser. Your words are so true! Keep going
