Moving Forward in Confidence – February 9 Inspiration

at

Moving forward in life, with confidence and without fear. Definitely a goal to strive for, even though it can be challenging at times. This idea goes back to a previous post about stepping out to find out. We can’t learn what’s coming up in life without moving forward, turning to the next page in our lives.

 

 

Here’s your inspiration for today…

 

“A confident woman believes she is loved,

valuable, cared for, and safe in God’s will.

When we feel secure,

it’s easy to step out and take a chance on failing

in order to try to succeed.

When we know we are loved for ourselves,

and not just for our accomplishments or performance,

we no longer need to fear failure.

We are free to find our own niche in life,

 which is not possible without stepping out.

Trial and error is the road to success,

and you can’t drive that road

as long as your car is parked.

So get moving, and God will direct you.

When people are confident,

they try things, and they keep trying until

they find a way to be successful

in what God has called them to do.”

–Joyce Meyer in “The Confident Woman Devotional”

My reflections:

I love the idea of being a “work in progress” — nobody is perfect, but we can continue to strive for excellence in our lives.

I also like the statement: “Trial and error is the road to success, and you can’t drive on that road as long as your car is parked.” Similar analogy again to not opening the automatic door until you step forward to trigger the mechanism. You can stare at it all day, but it won’t open until you step forward!

So what are YOUR thoughts?

Do you boldly step forward in life? Are you already operating within your niche?

    It doesn’t matter how much you strive for perfection you will never get there so I like the idea of moving towards perfection instead.

    I tend to tiptoe forward. I’m always a bit skittish about new things so I ease into the future.

    I feel that my writing can be an agent of change. I’ve never been a bold person. Can I be that person? Taking small steps towards that goal.
