Well, here in Gembu at GECHAAN we have had a lot of building going on lately. Here are bricks that the brick makers have made and they are drying in the sun. They have been working all week making them.
I got to thinking about how we prepare for things in life and this occurred to me. What if you spent all of your time “making bricks”, you take classes, you check all of the different sands that you need, you make sure you measure the water perfectly and then you even start making bricks. Well, after you have a bunch of bricks made, you get afraid to actually take the first steps you need to for building. “It’s too scary” you think. “What if I fail?” You sit there for a year with a bunch of bricks, and no new fence or pharmacy facility. Just sitting there.
This is a lot like those times I have had in my life where I get in “preparation block”. Afraid to fail or make a mistake or make the wrong decision, I make no decision at all! I once asked a friend and co-worker how she got so much accomplished and she told me, “Tina, you just have to get out there and do it!”
I am here to encourage you in this! If you are not moving forward, you are falling behind. There is no “standing still”. With the Christmas season right around the corner you have the most perfect opportunity to step out of your comfort zone and ask a neighbor, relative, or friend to join you in church Christmas events or a concert, or dessert at your house.
My point for today is this: You can read a book about it, practice it, take a class, but I am encouraging you right now to JUST DO IT! Start moving forward with sharing your faith, you never know who’s life He’ll change!
