Sometimes You Need A Little Nudge!
There are times that having setbacks
can cause all kinds of fears to
pop up their ugly heads. It would be so
tempting to let them keep you from
beginning a new journey
or keep you from continuing on the road
towards your dream or God-given plan.
I almost didn't show you this art journal page,
because of the erasing and over doing in spots to the
point that I couldn't fix it.
I decided since it is my own journal page,
from the heart of me,
that I would forgo perfection and
show you anyway. Hopefully, the message
will shine through.
At this time, I am not continuing
on with Beth Moore's book
So Long Insecurity,
but I will later. I had to take it back
to the library because there was
a long list of people waiting on it!
I love the book, although it is very deep and I had
to read it slowly so I could sink it all in.
After buying one of my own,
I will then continue blogging about it.
So now back to setbacks and needing
a little nudge! Sometimes I even
need a little PUSH!
Can any of you relate?
"We can edit later, but first
you must begin."
"The Lord delights in a man's way,
he makes his steps firm;
though he stumble, he will
not fall, for the Lord
upholds him with HIS hand."
I've had God, family, and friends
nudge me at different times along the
way in my journeys,
and I'm not sure I would have had
the courage, had they not.
That is why
we should never
underestimate the power of our
given to someone else.
I love this quote by
" When you have a passion deep down
inside-there will be a God confidence that
will come along side of you, that will equip
you for the task that is ahead."
The sad thing is, if we give into
our fears and don't BEGIN, then it will
keep us from ever getting the chance
to grasp that
which is waiting for us
right up the road.
I'm saying this for myself as much as
I'm saying it for YOU.
Let's quit putting off beginnings!
Whatever it is, I know YOU can do it!
YOU can BEGIN!!!!
I'm nudging you on.....
to that wonderful thing that is
waiting on YOU.
We can edit later!! he he
