This morning I’ve been thinking about the act of doing the right thing even when it hurts. I’ve written several posts on this topic over the years. In hindsight, I can tell you these moments of reluctant follow-through have led to more growth and freedom in my life than anything else.
It’s not the things in life that we’re eager to do that make the greatest impact in our lives. No, it’s the scary Goliath things. It’s those things in our lives we initially want to run from or ignore that are most significant.
When Fear is standing in front of us, taunting us and shouting out all the reasons why we are unqualified, what we choose to do next is crucial to the growth process.
If we want to fully experience the abundant life God has planned for us, then we have one choice.
We dig in our heels, pick up the Rock of Truth and hurl it back at the giant. That rock is a powerful Rock. That one Rock has the ability to take out Fear in a single blow.
What is one thing you know you need to do today but Fear is saying you can’t?
Pick up the Rock and throw.
