Most days I have so many thoughts and ideas that are playing all at once in my mind that they some times cancel each other out before I can shift through them all and pick one out of the bunch. But today during my morning commute the one thing that kept playing over and over in my mind was “Be Bolder”. Be Bolder about what?…. I’ve stepped out of my comfort zone and am sharing some of my deepest thoughts for the world to see that’s being, bold right?
Be Bolder about telling your testimony! Be Bolder about your struggles and what you’ve gone through! Be Bolder because there is someone out there who needs to know they aren’t alone in this fight. There’s someone who needs to know that there is life after divorce. There’s someone out there who needs to know that though things look bleak right now, things can and will turn around. Be bold and let them know that life for most people is not a cake walk, but they just hide it in ways to portray that everything is fine. Be Bold and let them know God’s redeeming and restoration power is real.
As I rode the elevator to my floor and continued pondering on this Be Bolder campaign, my mind flipped back to a few days ago when I saw a post on Instagram that said, “That Thing that Scares you. Yea, do that.” Low and behold today’s inspirational note for today was “Head up, shoulders back, thoughts positive, heart set on the promises of God.” Roger that! I get the message loud and clear.
Now am I a bit nervous, yes. But…
“God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound.” 2 Timothy 1:7
Am I still wrestling with digging deeper and being transparent or just staying on the surface, absolutely.
“…but I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:14
And in order for me to truly be obedient to where and what God has called me to do, I have to walk this thing out.
Are there some things in your life that you need to “Be Bolder” about? Things that absolutely frighten you, but you know in order to move to that next level you have to work through it? I challenge you to take this journey with me and Be Bold in your journey to overcome life’s challenges. I am not ashamed of my struggles nor am I ashamed of the scars that I have as a result of going through them. They are what makes me who I am. They are what makes me strong. They are what makes me beautiful. Make a pledge to yourself today to Be Bolder and step out on faith and do that thing that you know he told you to do, but it frightens you most. ~Tashauna
