Don't Let Fear Stop You
Hey ladies! Wow I cannot believe school starts soon or maybe has already started for you. My summer in New York has ended and I am just flashing back to this amazing opportunity God gave me. If you would have told me a year ago I will be living in NYC alone for two month I would have probably made fun of it and told you, you are crazy. A few month ago, I got an internship opportunity to go to NYC. I was so excited, just like most girls would be if they could live in NYC. I thought this is a dream come true, but it did not stay like that for the whole time. Towards the end of being home, it started getting real and people told me I was insane to move in such a dangerous and busy city all by myself. I started panicking. I cried on my boyfriend’s shoulder daily during the last week because I was scared. I was afraid to take my next step God had in store for me. I stumbled upon this verse in Proverbs 29:25 that states, “The fear of man lays a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is safe”. These few words are so powerful and really spoke to me. If I would say each day in NYC was easy I would be lying but I would also be lying if I would say I’d regret anything. This step God made me take, was one of the best things I could’ve asked for. I mean this in an aspect of personal growth as well as my relationship with God. This time is exactly what I needed to grow closer to the person God wants me to become. I am writing this blog to be real with every one of you. This move was not as easy for me as it maybe always looks on social media, but it was worth every tear. I want to encourage each of you to not be afraid to take your next step! Don’t let fear hold you back instead let your trust in God’s plan thrive you. Don’t let fear control your life instead let God lead you. Don’t let fear be in the way of Gods plans instead believe in his word. Jeremiah 29:11 states, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope”. What are you afraid of? Are you concerned about what other people will think or do you underestimate yourself?
