Hebrews 12:1- Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crown of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.
I completed my interview yesterday to start working a volunteer position on my church's (ThatChurch.com, check it out) creative team.
They are my friends, my church family. I love them. I am inspired by them. I'm creative. It's a good match.
But I'm still nervous. I'm really trying to push forward into photography in the way I know God wants me to. I feel like the obstacles and setbacks I've faced are as much as a testament to the fact that I should be doing this as my passion is. Isn't that how it always works? God sends you down a path to do the work He has for you so Satan throws roadblocks in the way and piles weights up on your back.
I have been wrong to live in fear of the next setback, wrong to be discouraged when I know I have been commissioned by my almighty God. James 4:17 says "It is a sin to know what you ought to do and not it." So let me to confess to you all, so that perhaps I will face accountability instead of turning in fear. God has made it clear in which way I am to serve Him....with my camera and the gift to create. I am riddled with shortcomings such as procrastination. I question my use to Him and let that hinder my productivity. But ultimately, I am clear on one thing. Doing nothing, when I know I should be doing something, is not an option.
