As I took down the final Alabama Championship paintings from the wall at my current job I realized blessings can be scary. I’m not at all ungrateful for an opportunity to embark on a new career path, and touch and be touched by the lives of new people I meet. But blessings can be scary. Why is that?
It’s not like we don’t pray for, plan for, believe for, wait on and work toward the things we desire whether they be a new job, marriage, children, a new house or car. But still, blessings can be scary. There’s something about an answered prayer that makes it REAL and makes you want to do right by it.
So that’s where I am today. I’m nervously confident and excitedly cautious. I want to do well next week and in all the days to come with my new job. I want to serve my purpose. I want to grow. I want to profit. I want to make those who’ve helped with this opportunity proud. I want to make sure I’ve made the right decision. I want to connect with the right people. I want to leave where I’m leaving better than when I arrived and set the stage for the same in my new adventure.
All-in-all I’d say those sentiments are usually the motivating factor for any success we desire in life. And if your life is anything like mine being a little scared has NEVER STOPPED success.
I know those are lofty goals that only my loving God can help come to pass. In the meantime, I’m fastening my seatbelt and getting ready to enjoy the ride!
