Current Lie barrage attacking my heart & mind: Who are YOU to dream so big? How could THIS happen with what little time/resources/etc you have to offer? You should do more and are capable of more and giving more. This won’t cut it. (The lie speaks in a VERY condescending tone)
The night before I launch my new website and finally articulate my next chapter the lies are swarming in! Not only that, I’m becoming VERY clear about what I will and will NOT put on my plate as I step into this chapter. It makes me physically shake.
Y’all. I am gonna fail. This will NOT be perfect. And even telling my precious perfectionist mind that’s ok, I’d like to go throw up and keep all of this to myself.
However, I felt compelled to share that on the eve of taking big steps (for me) that if you have ever had these same thoughts, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. I’m always nervous before something important, special (even date night). Lies work very hard to take me down, I fight back with vengeance, with action, and replacing the lie with truth.
Don’t wait to take your brave action ❤️. Stop what you are doing and go do it NOW! Seriously, you are so worth it and YES that dream can come true (if you choose to do the work), those resources will be multiplied (when wisdom, strategy & FAITH are applied), and these steps are exactly the ones I’m called to take so He can get the glory (as weird as that feels for a competent perfectionist).
Tonight I surrender. Not to the lie (that will keep attacking in odd ways) but to FAITH. In myself. In my community. In my dream. In my Father. Faith that no matter how insignificant my offering feels, He will move and do more than I could ever imagine ❤️
