No doubt, there is not a “how to” book on making unconventional life choices. In all my searching, I have come up short on finding a fool proof guide to follow when your heart is beating for the impossible.
It seems a step of faith doesn’t come equipped with the ability to see the whole story.
Instinctively, I want to go through the door of comfort. Instead, a burden for stepping into my greatest purpose keeps me waiting at another door.
I will tell you a secret. I have been desperate for someone or something to take me by the hand to validate the calling, which has long ago been placed in my heart by God.
This year, I have resolved to no longer be dependent on the approval of the world. I will step into my full potential, because God has already validated me.
What about you? Where do you fall?
I think you will find that the closer you get to your own greatest potential, the less likely it is that there will be someone holding your hand as a guide. Instead, you will be leading the way with others looking to you as the expert.
For some, this may feel empowering. But for the rest of us, we wonder if risk ever gets easier? Being an “expert” isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. Don’t be mad, but I will be honest. It doesn’t feel good. It is scary and that’s okay.
What if you stopped waiting on the world to validate your calling but stepped into the confidence that God has already validated it. What would that look like for you this year?
