Don’t allow your present circumstances to stop you from fulfilling your dreams. The last thing you want, is to be like the man who hid his talent out of fear. (Read Matthew 25:14-30). Fear that you don’t have what it takes. Fear that you’ll fail miserably. Fear that it will turn out to be a bad investment. Fear that you could lose everything. Fear of what the world may say or think.
The thing about fear is that it causes one to focus on self, rather than God. Fear is based on how we feel about a matter, rather than the truth of the matter. The truth of the matter is, when God graced you with talent, He also equipped you on the inside with everything you need. The gift is yours, you already have what it takes inside of you. Don’t allow external factors to cause you to hide what God has given to you, or to cause you not to do what God has put in your heart to do. Don’t live a life of should’ve, would’ve, could’ve, because that’s a life of excuse and regret. Make the decision to do. Step out on faith and take action. God knew everything about you before you knew yourself. He knew your family background, where you’d grow up, what schools you you’d attend, your flaws and all, and yet, He still gave you that special gift to share with the world, because none of those things are a factor. You just have to make a decision to trust God and believe that you can, and you will. Philippians 1:6, “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”
