Five Minute Friday: Ready -- Stepping Out in Faith
Today is my second time participating in the Five Minute Friday writing challenge.
Every Thursday evening a new word is posted, prompting bloggers to write for five minutes on that word without worrying about grammar, punctuation, etc. If you would like to join the fun, visit Kate's blog here! =)
Today's word is: ready.
There are times when I don't feel ready to do what God has called me to do. It is tempting to crawl back into my comfort zone in order to "prepare" a bit more before stepping out into the scary unknown.
And that is okay -- to a certain extent. God does want us to go through years of testing, of trials, of preparation before we are completely equipped.
But I can feel those seasons coming to an end. I can feel God gently tugging on my heart telling me that I am ready. It is almost time.
The thing is, I can't argue with Him. He knows far more than I do.
Just like Peter, I have to keep my eyes on Jesus. I can't look at the treacherous waves crashing around me, reminding me that I am attempting to accomplish the impossible, or else I'll sink.
