Do It Afraid!

How many times have you thought of executing a task, but then stop yourself because you are afraid? Often times, we as individuals are our biggest hindrance. If we are not talking ourselves out of a task, we are convincing ourselves that we are not able or lack the experience and abilities to do so.

We become creative with cooking up excuses of why it is best to not engage or start a task: Today it is “I am afraid it will…,” tomorrow it changes to “I am afraid it might…,” next tomorrow it becomes “I am afraid I…,” and on and on the list continues.

Well. . . DO IT AFRAID!

Start that project while being afraid.

Make that move while being afraid.

Submit that application while being afraid.

Send that request while being afraid.

In other words, acknowledge that you are afraid, but then still carry on. Do not stop at ” I am afraid.” But rather, “I am afraid, BUT, I will.” It is okay to be afraid, but it is not okay to let the spirit of fear overtake your life and control your decisions. For Christ has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).

It is better to do it afraid, than not at all. At least whatever the outcome may be, you will have no regret of not giving it a try at all.

  3. Many times when I’ve been afraid & began doing whatever, God has provided the grace to keep rolling (despite my fears which seem to eventually disappate, altho not my fear of snakes! Sometimes a little fear is healthy!) Great message – many thanks!! 💜🙏💜🌟💜🙏💜
