Bravery Is Sometimes Changing Your Mind

I have to admit something to you.

I’ve been cowardly for the past couple months. You wouldn’t know it from looking at me considering my new Facebook page for my blog, the investment I put into this site to make it my own, and the book proposal I’ve been steadily working on for the past month.

But I have been cowardly because I intentionally didn’t do something I felt God calling me to do because I was afraid of failing.

A few months ago, something began formulating in my head. A project of some sorts. I spent weeks planning it, praying about it, and contemplating it, and I felt the push from the Spirit to jump into it after returning from Clarkston. But when I did return, I became complacent and I pushed the project to the side.

I was scared.

I decided to do something more safe, like sharing cool blog posts and article once a week and calling it Friday Finds. It was a nifty idea, I thought. But it was only giving me more reason to hold off on the idea God was birthing in me.

And if that’s what Friday Finds is doing, then I don’t want to do Friday Finds anymore.

In fact, I’m removing Friday Finds altogether. I share a good majority of those links on my Twitter already. Friday Finds just takes up space on this blog that I could be giving to God and to this project.

I see now that I can’t keep writing about being brave if I’m not willing to be brave with this. 

So I am officially announcing my upcoming project, one that I think you’ll like and benefit from greatly. I believe this is something God’s been leading me into and I want Him to get the glory and credit in this.

More details are coming soon, I promise. For right now, I’m just going to give you a name. I know that if I at least do that, then I can’t easily back down.

I’m tired of letting my fears dictate my life. I know what is true. I know God’s sovereignty and goodness is true. I know His work in my life is true.

And my desperation to be brave is true, too.

If I really think about it, I have nothing to lose. And if this is where God is leading me, I have everything to gain.

COMING SOON:
