Afraid to Step Out

Have you ever felt the nudge or the prompting to do something, but instead of stepping out and doing what it is you feel led to do, you stop and in fear you are paralyzed?  You can't move forward a step because all of the what if's?

What if I fail?
What if I don't do it right?
What if I don't know what to do and get confused?
What will it look like living each day if I do that and take that step?
What if I lose things I don't want to lose when taking that step?

The questions and what if's go on and on.  I find myself in that situation it seems lately.  The thing that I am wondering though is what am I missing out on while I am scared stiffless??????  How much am I going to regret the wasted time I spent sitting here paralyzed instead of just stepping out in obedience.

So I take the step.  I write the first blog post in months.  Where will this lead?  How will I know exactly what to do to do it all right?  I don't know.  But I know I don't want to stand still any longer.  Jesus take the wheel.

I'm Still Here

It's been a long time since I posted here.  It has been a crazy few years and a lot feels like a blur.  Mostly I am thinking it feels like a blur is because I've been trying to rush by it all.  I keep getting the thoughts to hurry up and do this and get it done and then hurry up and do that and get it done.  Then when all is done I can relax.

See that isn't how it works and I am learning this.  I have been a hurry up kind of girl all my life.  But God is starting to reteach me (again because He has shown me this before) to slow down.  To enjoy moments, to enjoy the day, to obey His Holy Spirit throughout each day.  That is how to live, not rushing here and there and hurry up this and hurry up that.

I do wonder how much I have missed along the way by rushing through life.  It creates fear too, and worry, which does NO good at all.

So I am now reminded of my one word for 2014, and I still have a month and a half to be refreshed by this...


That is my one word.  He told me to unwind.  It's like I have wound myself up so much like a wind up toy and I need to now unravel it all and REST.  Sit.  Relax in Him.  Let Him work.  Stop hurrying.

Do you need to stop hurrying to finish out 2014?  Would you join me in unwinding and relaxing in Him?  What is He teaching you lately?

My Other Blog

So this is my blog that is my heart and home and I would love to continue here and think I will.  I have also started another blog here that you can visit me at.  I am teaching myself blogging and seeing where I fit best.  I love it here and love the design that Liz did for me here and I don't think I want to leave it.  It's so personable and prayed over :)

Miss My Blogger

So hey there it's been a while since I've written.  I have missed it here lots.  I had read and heard so many things when reading about blogging about using Wordpress to make things better.  That if you want to have a great blog that's the place to be.   So I went that route and started a wordpress blog and I'm just finding myself stuck.  I am finding myself thinking I have to figure out how it works before I can share my heart and write like crazy.  Crazy right?

So here I am.  My home blog where my blogging journey started and I love blogger.  If you want to see where I started my other blog you can check it out by clicking here

So what have I been up to?  I have been up to lots of stuff.  One thing is that I am working out my one word for 2014 and that is Unwind.  I am wanting to unwind as God has shown me and let go of control and unwind and relax and not be so uptight.  But relax in Him and learn how to walk by the Holy Spirit who lives in me even better.

As far as eating goes.  I have maintained my size and weight, but am at my highest weight ever while not being pregnant (which is crazy!).  I have started a Bible study through Thin Within workbook 2 and am going to go through that with some friends online.  I am also reading here and there my favorite, Truly Fed, book. 

I celebrated 2 years gluten free in March.  I can't believe it's been that long.  I have learned so much and have more I can share about that in days to come.  It has been an interesting journey.

Have a wonderful rest of your weekend!!
