Matt sent me this quote yesterday from one of our favorite pastors. I love it. I've memorized it. I needed it.
It's stupid to miss out on doing something because you're
afraid of looking stupid. -Steven Furtick
I can't tell you how easily it is for me to want to walk away from my dream because of the simple reason, I am afraid of looking stupid or being rejected. Even though I've felt called to this since childhood, fear lurks around every corner and laughs at me. I love that Casting Crowns song that says, ... but the giant's calling out my name and he laughs at me, reminding me of all the times I've tried before and failed. The giant keeps on telling me time and time again, boy, you'll never win... But the voice of truth tells me a different story.
I'm listening to the voice of truth, and no matter where this leads, it's where He wants me. Success of failure. Rejection or applause.
