It is currently 3:12 AM, and I'm writing this from behind this from behind the desk at work because I just have to get this out of me. I'm tired of living my life in fear. I'm tired of being too afraid to post the things that God puts on my heart out of the fear that people will think I'm crazy, arrogant, delusional, or just straight up weird. I'm tired of feeling like my thoughts are not good enough to share. Ya'll, I'm just so tired!
So this is me officially deciding to stop caring so much about what people think about me. Now, this doesn't mean that I'm going to be out here living recklessly, justifying sin, and refusing correction. The Word of God is still The Word of God and the standard by which I live my life by as a Christian. I've just decided to be alot more intentional about the way I live my life by choosing Jesus over fear, and you should too.
You can't walk in the fullness of who God created you to be if your too busy trying to please everyone. Fear of criticism is a real thing, and if you want to thrive in life, you're gonna have to learn to put past it. It's time to step out in faith.
Stop trying so hard. Stop taking yourself so seriously. God wants you to be free. He has great things in store for you, and you just don't know what's on the other side of your faith and obedience. Be free!
