As I step out in faith to do something new and daring, I may feel like I did when I first went off the high diving board at the swimming pool. I was scared because when we make the conscious choice to let go of our comfortable position or surroundings, it may be fearful.
But when I’m doing something new, just like when I was diving, my fear quickly is replaced with exhilaration and excitement as I soar through the experience with complete trust. I let go of my fear. I tell myself, God is with me and all is well and I dive.
Letting go of fear is liberating. As I let go and trust God, I open the way for God’s perfect expression within me and in all the circumstances of my life. I don’t worry about the outcome, for I know that all is well. I know that God is in charge and that I am being divinely guided and blessed.
When you find yourself doing a new thing or something that is frightening – replace your fear with excitement and exhilaration. If you have the urge to do a thing, I believe you can move past your fear and do it.
Let go. Have faith. And just dive.
