MATRIX MOBILE PHONE CALL – HQ: http://youtu.be/oDT6SCSUXvE
A few months ago I posted a similar blog about answering the call. I’m gonna expand on this one.
Forgive me if I go on to different roads during this blog….but it all ties in….or I hope it does.
Whether you want to call yourself a person of faith, religious, athiest, whatever….we all have a calling. Whether it is to be the best person you think you can be, a better provider, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, brother, sister, parent. ..I think you get the point. Start a business, go on a road trip that will determine things in your life ….we are all called to do something that takes us out of our comfort zone and drops us right smack dab into a place of uncertainty and unfamiliarity.
For myself, being a man of faith….which really translates to trust….I have been called so many times to do things which have scared the you know what out of me…..because it takes me out of my comfort zone…my known place.
But as we get ready to accomplish or take on this great feat….so many doubts so much fear overtakes us questioning our abilities, our skill. I speak from experience. So many times I have allowed my fears to control my decision. Yes….this is a confession SPOILER ALERT…I ain’t perfect.
Saturday I sat down and watched Evan Almighty. …if you haven’t seen it watch it. Here’s an awesome clip.
God and Opportunities – Evan Almighty: http://youtu.be/KDDqCgV9jWo
I absolutely love this clip. How many times have we asked for _____ and expect it to mysteriously happen. But in reality….it is in the opportunities that our _____ develops. It is in that moment it is developed and valued more.
A few weeks ago I was called to do something big…and as always…my insecurities, feeling of inefficiency crept up trying to overshadow what I am now being called to do. I have to be honest. …for a week and a half I was in a place of depression. ..frustrated w life and circumstances (still am) but I had let that overwhelm my heart. Finally after having a great conversation w a friend from church….he said “the reason He called you is because you ARE the best man for the job. It’s ok to question yourself and doubt in yourself…but dont ever question God’s wisdom….you’ll look pretty stupid. Lol”. It was through all of the experiences I have been through that have prune me and prepared me to be at this place right now. Without knowing it, the prayers of asking for _____, God had been placing me in them for my ____ to be developed.
So what have you been called to do? Have you been afraid…..sure! Have you been so uncertain it has halted you from taking that first step? Probably…..but just remember somebody bigger than you and I have called us to make those changes for the better in our lives. To positively change and touch lives around us.
So when that fear creeps up, anger rages inside, frustration…..whatever it may be….just remember there’s somebody bigger who can and will walk with you the whole way through.

So answer that call….it’s ok to be afraid….because there can be no courage unless your scared.
Hey…….the phone’s ringing…..are you gonna answer it?
