For many years I've felt that I should be writing, but it was easy to put it off as too much work, that I don't have useful things to say, that I should wait until I have more experience, that tomorrow or next week would be a better time to start writing.
This is sort of my 6th career after college 8 years ago. I've been fired twice, quit twice, and now am more attentive to God's unexpected plan.
Often I know what the next step is for me, but fear holds me back. I'm an INF T/P on the Myers-Briggs, and I make most of my decisions by intuition. When I don't know what to do next it's scary. Next steps in work could be resolving conflict, making a commitment, or taking a new risk.
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil.
It will be healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones.
Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your produce;
then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.
My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline or be weary of his reproof,
for the LORD reproves him whom he loves, as a father the son in whom he delights."
What are we clinging to that we need to let go of to make room for something new?
