Choosing to step out of your comfort zone to do something you know God has been pulling you to do will truly challenge you but bring peace within when it is completed. Honestly, how many times have we pushed away the one thing we know God has been calling us to do? Contact a friend, do that paperwork, or make needed decisions for your future. Each may vary, but what is certain we all believe if we don’t look at it that it will eventually go away. Actually it doesn't, it continues to stay. Day after day we prolonging our growth and fortune as we decide to not move.
Moving forward into unfamiliar territory can bring us a lot of fear and doubts, but it is our trust in God that will sustain us. No matter the outcome God will be there to catch us when we fall. I can tell you to make the decision to move, I know you think, but how? How will this work? Where will I go? What if I look foolish?
I remember a time when I was being pulled to obey God in my future endeavors. That meant to move out of my apartment and leave my then lover and all stability. Fear tried to handicap me and it did for a little while. However, I finally decided to make my break. This was one of the hardest moves I had ever made in God. While I had much doubt and fear I knew that I had to face the elephant in the room. I had to move. I could no longer stay in the same place trying to ignore what God was pulling me to do.
I left everything that was once comfortable for a new, unfamilar, scary path.
I was afraid. I did struggle. I cried many nights, but in the process God was preparing me to be the woman I am today.
Making the decision to move is scary, but once you do, you are now in the perfect allignment to recieve all God has for you. No move will ever be easy, but what better way to show our trust and love for God than to move when it scares us and challenges us.
Today examine your life and write down all the things you have not moved on due to fear and unanswered questions. Send up a prayer to the Father for guidance and protection. Then start one by one attacking all your fears.
Shortly, you will see that fear was just False Evidence Appearing Real.
Decide to Move Today!

in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight." (Prov. 3:5-6)
