The Aha Moment That Leveled up My Confidence
Last year I had a major aha moment and it completely changed the way I move through life. As a result of making a conscious decision to be more obedient to the voice of God, I experienced a sudden manifestation of things I was dreaming and praying about. I’m talking about the kind of dreams and goals that typically take a while to manifest. Within that moment of realization, I promised God that I would intentionally answer whenever He called and take action on every single assignment He sent. I was committed to PUT FEAR ON A LEASH and step out of my comfort zone toward a journey into the unknown. Committing to move away from what feels safe and familiar has required TOTAL trust in God as my Navigator. My motivation to move comes from knowing that the place He has called me to occupy is far greater than where I’d remain.
Honestly speaking, getting out of my comfort zone without thinking twice is scary but what scares me more is getting to the end of my life with regrets of not answering God’s call or experiencing all His plans and promises. Did you know that the big dreams and desires we have are like seeds planted by God? We already have everything we need to cultivate those seeds and produce greatness, but we have to do our part which is simply answering the call.
Saying yes every time God calls may seem like a far-fetched idea and you’re probably thinking, “Marisa you don’t answer every call do you?” I will say this, fear and doubt will always try to get us to ignore the call BUT here are a few ways I’ve learned to put fear on a leash and answer the call despite my feelings.
