A year ago today I created an Etsy account in hopes of selling some of my photos. I actually did sell a few photos to my awesome family and friends (lol). Hey a sale is a sale right! I look back at my boldness and courage with a smile. Lately, I have been battling with fear and faith with regard to my next steps with this photography journey. It’s funny how God can place something within us, yet we don’t have enough faith to make bold moves and trust that He will see us through. This has been exactly the case with me. I’ve been reading the gospel of Matthew and it seems as though the theme has been about faith. Can we say timing?! There comes a point where we have to be bold and make steps despite the fear. I often ask myself, “Am I serving fear or faith?” We can’t serve both. Either I will believe or I will not. Either I will trust Him or I will not. If we truly believe God is God, then all things are possible. But what if that possibility includes our faith to make those bold moves. We only have one life and so I am reminded to be bold and step out on faith for “Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1).
Feelings of unworthiness creep in making me feel as though I lack within.
For Christ is the truth and I am worthy all because He died for me.
He paved the way so I would no longer walk in fear of what the enemy might say.
For it’s through my faith that God will show me the way.
But first maybe He is waiting to see what step I will take.
So I will walk despite my fears.
I will make the most of each year.
For one day I hope to hear, “Well done my good and faithful servant.”
