Last night I attended an online seminar and was moved DEEPLY. I feel as though I haven't been putting enough attention into my family's mission, so this week's question asked by Jamie fits in beautifully with my thoughts.
Jamie Asks: How do you wish to stretch?
I wish to stretch out of this hold I keep putting myself in. I step up to the ledge and feel completely ready to leap into what my heart and soul knows I should be doing every-single-day and then I inch back out of fear.
I'm not afraid of failing, but of rejection. I wish to stretch myself out of this. I wish to be free of this fear. This mission is what has been placed in my heart by God himself since 1992 and for the past 2 years I've been faithful, but I'm not giving it my all. I want - NO I NEED to give it my all. In the seminar the speaker spoke of following your truest self. Knowing what your ministry is and fulfilling it to the fullest. I need to no longer fear or care what others will or will not do in respect to our mission. What my focus should be on is what He has put me here for. My ministry is Afiveoh4uplifting and I wish to stretch it's goodness from east to west as of today!
FYI: Afiveoh4uplifting.org is a mission ran by my family and I for the sole purpose of "Spreading Smiles One Goody Bag At A Time" to all children and adults in need of an uplifting.
