Have you ever been forced to wonder “what’s next?”

I mean, sure we all think about it from time to time, but there are certain points in our lives when we’ve intentionally had to wonder what God has planned for our next chapter.

Fear Punch Friday: Fear of Self

Today’s Fear Punch Friday post has a little deeper than the ones before it. I hope I’ve organized these few ramblings enough to disguise them as planned-out thoughts. :)

One of the things I fear is being myself. I always wonder, “Will I be good enough? Will they love me, hate me or just ambiguously “like” me?” Truth be told, that third one is the worst.

Do I get in the way of my own self? Some times, yes.
But is that an opportunity to learn and grow? Always.
Am I still figuring our my strengths? Definitely.
Am I afraid to admit my weaknesses? …I plead the 5th.

“Just be yourself, May!” I hear this a lot, but fear tells me that “just myself” isn’t good enough. Truth says it is good enough because He formed me and created me for a specific purpose.

Eventually the fog in my head will clear and I’ll discover that purpose, but that comes with time, experience and trail-and-error. And trail-and-error. And trail-and-error.

Until then, I’ll just keep STARTing.

Oops!

Since beginning to read Jon Acuff’s START book and participating in The Start Experiment, I’ve learned to recognize when fear runs its dirty mouth inside my head.

It spits out nasty things like this: Continue reading
