Don’t hold back

In the cushioned seat of the local church rests untold, often abandoned potential. There is a wealth of songs unsung, plays unwritten, sermons untaught. We sit idly by awaiting permission to move or for that illusive “door to open” with a myriad of excuses; “I’m seeking direction” or “I’m not sure what God’s will for my life is”.  I can tell you. God’s will is for you to be who He created you to be.  Allow what He placed inside of you to shine.  Let His life live through you. Create, thrive, sing, build, clean, dance, add, answer phones, drive. Do whatever it is that you do for Him and unto Him. Allow Him to occupy and move in every part of who you are. Most of all, don’t be afraid! He wouldn’t have placed something in you if He didn’t intend for you to use it.  Don’t hold back.

1 Corinthians 7:20 “Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called.”  

Colossians 3:23 “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men”

One thought on “Don’t hold back

  1. Don’t be afraid is the theme for me lately. As I venture into this new phase of my life, developing my business, I’m constantly leaning on him to help me not be afraid. Yet, I forget that I’m doing what I’m doing because He’s placed me here, now, with my skills, for a reason, therefore I don’t have to be afraid. Thank you for reminding me. xoxo
