What If?

What if I wasn’t afraid of what other people would think?

What if I wasn’t afraid?

IMG_0668What if I was more daring, more adventurous?

What if I wasn’t afraid of failing?

What if I truly trusted what I was hearing God say?

What if I took that trip? Talked to that person? Sent that email? Wrote that book?

What if I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that God would be there whatever I tried?

Even if I did fail.

Even if I got lost along the way.

Even if nobody cared what I had to say.fullsizeoutput_7d98

What if I said something kind to that person who looks so sad?

What if I gave up everything and followed Jesus wherever He led me?

What if I never had any regrets?

Made any mistakes.

Loved and lost.

Sometimes clouds create the most beautiful sunsets.

Yep, it had to rain.

There is no growth where there is no trial.

No lessons learned where there have been no failed attempts.

  1. Visiting as your FMF neighbor. What if … Famous last words. But I love the conclusion. There is no growth where there is no trial. No lessons learned where there have been no failed attempts.

  2. Great post! Focusing on the pitfalls rather than the possibilities can definitely hold me back at times, but it’s true that we need to step out, even if we fail at times. God can still use that to teach us and work through it. Visiting from FMF #6.

  3. We picked up a similar theme in our writing prompt this weekend. Blessing to you – let’s jump past the wondering and into the challenges that will grow us!
