This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
Today I am reflecting on this notion of being trapped between who I MUST be, and who I WANT to be.
A couple of weeks ago, I was talking to a girlfriend about another dear friend who seems to be in this very place – trapped between who she must be, and who she wants to be.
It prompted me to reflect on my own experience when I was on the fence about leaving my corporate job for a more entrepreneurial path.
There were many days that I sat on that fence paralyzed by fear. Despite my deepest desire to move forward, I stayed where I was even though I was unhappy where I was, because I feared what may or may not lie ahead.
On the surface, I seemed to have fear around provision. My husband and I had three school-aged children to provide for at the time so I didn’t want to pursue the desires of my heart, but not have enough to help provide for my family.
Over time, I realized that to conquer my fears I had to first be more introspective about what I truly feared.
While I thought my only fear was around provision, I learned that my fears ran deeper than that.
So the first Words that come up for me are, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 (NIV)
Tomorrow, let’s talk about our inner voice. Share this B Moment, because others also desire to be inspired.
So today, be a little more introspective about the core of your fears, and then release it.
