That’s right. I’m talkin’ to you!
You found this post because you’re searching for answers. You might even be trying to wiggle your way out of doing God’s will.
It’s uncomfortable, isn’t it?
God is asking you to do something that you’re not at all comfortable with and, to be honest, you’d really rather not do it. But it’s on your mind. You try to ignore it, but it never really goes away. It’s sort of like having a rock in your shoe. Such a little thing can make you really uncomfortable, and, if you try to ignore it, it just gets worse.
Irritating, isn’t it?
God can be so persistent sometimes.
So what’s holding you back?
You’re afraid, aren’t you?
I know, because I’ve been there. In fact, I *am* there. That’s why I’m writing about this.
So what are you afraid of?
That it won’t work?
That other people won’t support you?
That other people won’t understand?
That God really won’t come through for you?
That it’s too big or too difficult?
That it’s inconvenient or awkward?
That you might fail or look foolish?
I know. Believe me. I know.
So what are we going to do about it?
We could keep ignoring it, but it’s not going to go away. That annoying rock in your shoe just keeps irritating you. We’re going to have to do something about it, you know.
God is waiting for you to respond.
God is waiting for me to respond.
The only real solution is to just do whatever it is that God is urging you to do.
I know it’s not easy.
I know you have reasons not to do it.
But you and I both know that we are going to have to bring ourselves to do it.
God wants us to do it.
And you know what?
I think it’s going to feel a whole lot better if we just do it.
It’s sort of like taking time to get that rock out of your shoe so it will stop irritating you.
You know, God’s not really the one making you uncomfortable. It’s you. If we learned to act right away, we wouldn’t have to spend time being uncomfortable.
So, let’s do it.
Let’s just do the thing God has been urging us to do, whatever it is, and get it over with once and for all.
I know it’s scary.
I know it’s uncomfortable.
I know you don’t want to take the risk.
But isn’t the risk God’s problem?
God asked you to do it, so He must know what He’s doing, right? And if God knows what He’s doing, don’t you think things might turn out better if you do it than if you don’t do it? And when you do it, don’t you think God has a plan for how things will turn out? I bet God’s plan will turn out better than you think.
There’s only one way to find out.
