Fear of Failure

We all fear failure. Failure with relationships, our jobs, personal goals, family etc. 

Fear is what holds us back from God’s plan. This is where our strength in faith comes in. 

 The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trust in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him. The Lord is the strength of his people, a fortress of salvation for his anointed one.   

 Psalm 28:7-8

How powerful is this verse! I love it! A fortress of salvation!๐Ÿ’œ

I think for me personally, the fear of failure is most definitely real. I know this because that was me, and I know so many who struggle with this. I was so afraid that I wouldn’t be good enough, smart enough, and people would make fun of me. I really let the opinions of other’s take root into my heart. I also knew that if I continued to think this way, that nothing was ever going to get better and I was going to miss something BIG!

Here I am two years later still sharing my passion of what I love to do and God has blessed me more than I have ever dreamed. What would’ve happened if I let the opinions of other’s stick in my head and let the thoughts of failure completely take over my life? I would have missed God’s calling and I’d still be stuck in the same place. A place where I surely didn’t want to be.

 Are you letting fear hold you back? It’s taking that leap of faith, and full surrender to God for a miracle to take place in your life.

 But what if I can’t do it? Well how will you know if you don’t try? You will continually stay stuck in the same spot you are in. Then you will be unhappy when you see others you know succeeding in what you desired to do yourself! Waiting for the right moment will leave you stuck where you are now forever.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. 

Joshua 1:9

From my heart to yours,

Do not be afraid! Do not let others drag you down with them. Instead, be FEARLESS in the fight for your life! God has such a wonderful promise to never leave us. You are not worthless. You are not a failure! You’re God’s creation. A creation who was put on this earth for a purpose. 

Now go do that thing!๐Ÿ’œ
