Action vs. Inaction – Get Honest with Yourself

Things may feel uncertain, as you are on the precipice of a new beginning. The nervous energy is flying, and in this state, you have the ability to rush something through in the name of completion, but what if you’re the project?
Sit with that for a second.
Are you showing up for yourself fully? Are you even showing up? Lots of uncertainty before a new beginning can be compared to the man giving up on digging when diamonds lie on the other side.
YOU are the diamonds on the other side, so fight through the urge right now to hide, withdraw, or push away. Isolation causes loneliness, and your escape route is closing. Face what is bothering you without the self-numbing and avoidance.
Wake up. You’re the only one who can pull yourself from despair.
I thank you, even in the midst of darkness, for being a guiding light I can find my way back to. Deliver me from any shame or guilt that has caused me to hide away from others. Thank you, God for consistently showing me that I am more than capable – that your strength is made perfect in my weakness. Remove anything from my life that steals my joy and causes separation between us. Perfect me through the renewing of my mind.
In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
We are finding our way on a journey through the unknown. Looking to revive something you once had? You’ll have a better time finding your way back if your compass is Love.
