I assume since your still reading this you read Liv's post. Her goals for 2015 is all about adventures and taking risks and I'm totally in agreement with her; this year I'm going to do stuff that puts me out of my comfort zone. Naturally I'm a intervert so when I get around a big group of people I tend to clam up and sit there silently. I'd rather watch from the outside and not get involved.
As Christians I think sometimes we can be too cautious. We're afraid to take risks because we feel as if the only way to be close to God is to behave right all the time. These past few months has really brought a new perspective on taking risks; I now think that God WANTS us to take risks and try new things. I'm not talking about going and jumping off a cliff or thinking "hey I've never been to a party before, lets go get drunk tonight". Maybe you've always had that dream of going to cosmetology school and your afraid to pursue it because "it may not be part of God's plan for me". Philippians 3:12 really hit home with me. It says:
We don't have to live in fear of our imperfections because we can live with faith in God's perfect plan for us. If we take a chance on something we weren't sure about all we have to do is lift up our hands and tell God we're confused.
Hopefully this hit some of you guys hard like it did me. This year I am not going to be afraid of taking risks because I know if I mess up God's right beside me. Have a fabulous rest of your week and make sure you follow us and come back on Monday for Liv's post!
