Day 21: Start

Day 21: Start

This month, I’m participating in a Five Minute Friday challenge called “31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes,” responding to a one-word prompt for five minutes each day in October. Click here to join in!

Start. Sometimes that’s all you need to do. You’re standing on the edge of something big, and it’s exciting yet terrifying. You’re about to take the plunge, but fear is holding you back.

You know God is calling you to help that ministry to the homeless in your city. You know you need to have that conversation to restore peace with the person you’ve hurt. You know you should apply for that job that would give you invaluable experience.

You’re afraid of failure: What I’m rejected? What if the bridge is burned? What if I get hurt? You’re afraid of success: What if I don’t enjoy that job? What if I have to speak in front of people?

Just take the first step. Start today.
