The questions torment me… spinning round and round inside my mind:
What if people judge me?
What if they laugh at me?
What if I try and fail?
What if I’m rejected?
What if I’m not good enough?
What if I’ve heard God wrong?
What if this is all a big mistake?
If I listen to them for too long, I’ll give in to fear, lock myself away, play it safe, keep quiet.
But then I hear another voice, whispering through the turmoil- the voice of hope- presenting another set of questions:
What if God can use this?
What if God is calling you?
What if this makes a difference, even for a few people?
What if this will bring new freedom- for you and for others?
What if God has a purpose in this that is bigger than you can see right now?
What if you let fear hold you back from what God is calling you to do?
What if you trust him?
There’s only one way to find out…
