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!

Angela - I'm afraid of risks and the unknown as well. It takes great faith and courage to forge ahead when your feet are scared to keep taking those steps!
Whatever happens with this job, you will grow through it. And you can be proud of yourself for trying something new and stretching yourself. :)
