When?

If not now. Then when? What are you waiting for? The time is now. If you are similar to me, there is something you have dreamed of doing ....but put off for another time.
The root is FEAR. Cast it aside. What are you afraid of? Success?
For years I was fearful of sharing my art. What if no one liked it. What if no one bought it.
Well, I have faced my fear and saw my own criticism. I heard someone say one time ,"That the strongest voice you hear in your mind is YOURS." So look in the mirror and repeat after me.
No one may like it, no one may buy it....BUT....I refuse to allow my God given talent to lay fallow any longer. You have many gifts that are uniquely yours.
How do you know....in the garden of life....you might be a mustard seed! I might be a mustard seed!
A mustard seed is quite tiny, yet it grows into a large tree that others may take shelter in.
Jesus said...
Matthew 13:31
Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and sowed in his field:

Matthew 13:32
Which indeed is the least of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is the greatest among herbs, and becometh a tree, so that the birds of the air come and lodge in the branches thereof.


Wow! O.K. so seek and you shall find. Ask him. What is my mustard seed?
Is it an creative outlet? Service to others, encouragement, faithfulness, writing?
You get the point. Do not despise small beginnings. Just start. And then step by step...take another step.
We are waiting to watch the Lord shine
thru YOU.. Yes... YOU!
