Every creative knows there’s this moment…
When you send the e-mail
When you click “post”
When you share the file
And suddenly you feel exposed.
Your heart and hard work on display.
Will it be accepted? Will it be corrected?
Will it be praised? Will it be criticized?
I used to fall into bed, crumpled into a ball of insecurity.
I never felt as though anything I ever wrote was good enough.
Fear of not measuring up chained my words.
But not anymore.
I know who I am, because I know Whose I am.
I was created to create.
When fear tries to bully me back into the cage of inadequacy I bully it back.
Because I have this assurance--
He speaks to me, and He speaks through me.
And I can no longer deny my voice, for I deny His voice;
His message of love; of truth; of comfort; of admonition; and encouragement.
For "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me" (Galatians 2:20, NIV).
And "God has not given [me] a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline." (2 Timothy 1:7, NLT).
Dwelling in Him,
A little about me...
