Is that Fear?

The first time I spoke to the producer of the ESPN story, I was very nervous afterward.  I wasn’t sure if this was something Tom and I should do.  Fear had a very loud voice and I was listening.  I was having trouble distinguishing if the thoughts I was having were fear or God telling me not to do it. 

I told a few people that I was nervous and was told twice, “You don’t have to do this.”  I was shocked at their words but they were right; I didn’t have to do this.  Then I knew it was fear talking to me the whole time.  I did have to do this.

There is a difference between fear and a check (uneasiness) in your spirit.  If you feel a check or STOP in your spirit, you need to stop.  If it’s fear………laugh in its face.  Don’t let fear steal a blessing.  Don’t let fear stop you from being a blessing.  I was taught, “Feel the fear and do it any way.” 

God is with us always.  He leads us to victory.

Thanks for reading :)
