When you ask God to show you signs to help you learn, and take that open door or close it, He will show it to you.
I have intentionally tried to be more aware of what is going on around me, being more in tune, instead of being so easily distracted by things that don’t matter.
In this innocent clip I took of my bubz, I realized God was teaching me a vital reminder through my son!
Take that step
Bubz was so hesitant to walk across the bridge because he had seen others walk/run on it, and realized that the bridge shook. There were a couple times before this video was taken, that he walked up to the bridge, thought about it, turned around and went a different way. I am not sure what did it this time, but he finally took the courage. If he was going to walk across the bridge, He knew if he needed to he could grab a hold of those rails.
DING! God was telling me, “Crystal, I know the things you want to do, but you have to trust me. Take hold of my unchanging hand and I will lead you across anytime!” I have struggled so many times with fear of letting my potential be known to others, what I know God placed within me to share. Fear of failure, opinions, judgement, doubt, comparison, the list could go on. God keeps sending me signs and building up my confidence, my courage, my ability and faith. The ONLY thing that matters is that God says well done, that I took that step, no matter what the result.
It may be scary, but the step has to be taken… and then take the other. Before you know it, you have made it across.
Don’t ignore the signs.
11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
