My Risks Come With Worries
You've heard the saying to the left before..."the greatest risk is not taking one." I believe this to be true, but to be honest I wish it wasn't! I am not a risk taker by nature. It is very hard for me to take a risk...mostly because of the fear or the unknown. It is hard for me to try something that might end up....see I don't even know the word! I just fear the unknown. I tell you all of this because I recently got a new job. I haven't started yet, but I go in today to pick up my uniform and schedule training. It is a waitress job and I have no experience serving food! I think that because I don't know what to do or what to expect I am really nervous and scared to start this! I think that I would be good at this sort of thing, working with people, and such, but I still have this feeling. I have been praying and reading the word over and over to comfort me, and I keep coming back to this feeling. I know that I must be holding on to a piece of my fear, because if I had given it all to the Lord then I wouldn't be worrying like this! I pray that I can give it all to God and trust Him with it all. I don't want to rely on myself...that will get me nowhere! I just want to ask for prayer about this. I want to fully rest on the Lord so I can build my faith in Him and have a peace in my heart... no matter what risk I am taking. Thanks so much! I will do my best to lose myself, let go of myself, and depend fully on God!
