Everything?

I'm a fan of The Bible on Facebook. Sounds kind of silly if you think about it. Each day, I get 'something' from them; either a verse I needed to hear or words of wisdom.

Lately, I've seen some great quotes by a man named, Mark Brown. Sometimes so profound that I'll copy & use them as my status (giving him the credit though).

Today, The Bible recommended a video of Mark talking on Philippians 4:13. Since I'm up early, I decided to take a look.
Philippians 4:13 :
For I can do EVERYTHING through Christ, who gives me strength. (NLT)


WOW! What words! Hearing him has light a spark in my heart. What is it I want to do?

I want to go back to school to get my degree to become a surgical tech. I want to begin my own ministry for rape survivors. Why haven't I done it yet? Fear. Fear of failure.

That's just Satan trying to hold me back. The last thing he wants is for me to be a ministry. He wants to hold me in my fear so that I cannot help others.

So, today's the day! I'm getting my butt in gear; gonna start the education process again. This time, I can't worry about 'IF' I fail. There are tons of 'IF's in the world... living by 'IF' isn't living. It's FEAR and I will not longer be fearful of the unknown. It's not unknown.... God knows what His plan for me is. If someone knows, then it isn't unknown.

What is your dream???

Many blessings,
Allison

Allison, (Thanks for visiting my "return to blogdom" by the way). I am a fan of The Bible on fb, too...but I have to admit I haven't watched any of his videos yet. Now I'll have to check it out. Have a great week!
