The Paradox Of This Believer

I was raised being "Christian," but I didn't get to believe in God until about two years ago honestly. I know, I am not sure where I was the other 25 years, but I can see now that I was in limbo, lost. Which is why if you do not believe in God I understand. I mean come on, I was raised in a Christian home and didn't believe it. Sometimes I still have to reel myself back in because I go off on the very edge of not understanding again.

Dream On.

Have you ever had a dream that you pushed so hard for but hit a wall or maybe you ran out of energy and never got to see it come to completion? I feel you. I’ve had a couple of dreams that never came back to life, but there was one that kept burning in my heart even after I thought it was dead.

It was frustrating to know there was nothing I could do to help and all I wanted was to make a difference. Then I started praying, “Lord, use me. Lord, I am ready.” It sounds nice, right? Asking God to be used to be a good person to others? Yes, it is until he answers your prayers. All of these opportunities got laid out in my path, and I froze. I have been scared to take a step forward or even talk about them to people. Why? Well, the fear of failing to be honest, but this isn't for me or about anything I can do in my own strength. I am not qualified for any of it, so why am I scared? If this is from God. If I asked to just be the vessel, then the pressure is not on me but on God.
