How many times have you stayed awake at night wondering about your future? The vision of all of the bad things that may happen kept you awake all night only to discover your worries were unfounded.
As a child of God, I can tell you that worry is one of the greatest stressors in life. It will destroy your dreams and keep you paralyzed. You find yourself not being able to make a decision because you are afraid something might happen. The truth is something is going to happen whether you move or not. The issue is what?
There is a story in the Bible of lepers who according to the law could not go into the city for they were considered unclean and needed to remain outside of the city for the protection of the people. They were isolated and alone. They had each other, but they were all in the same boat.
One day the city from which most of them had come was under attack. They knew if the city was destroyed there was no chance of them getting food. They were left outside of the city with no hope of life. Then the moment came, one of them had an “A-ha!” moment.
If we go into the city we might die, but if we remain here, we will surely die. They collectively decided they would take a chance on going into the city. Once they arrived there, they noticed that the enemies were gone and the was city was left open. There and there was plenty of food there for them.
The moral of the story is; if you stay where you are, what will your future look like? If you pushed past your paralysis of analysis, fear, and anxiety you might reach your destiny.
Remember what you learned as a child? “You will never know until you try.”
You will never know until you MOVE!
