"I have accepted fear as a part of life - specifically the fear of change... I have gone ahead despite the pounding in the heart that says: turn back" Erica Jong
I've felt it....since last year....probably longer...a niggling inside...knowing it was time for a change...to leave the familiar...and take a step in a new direction. It was there....nagging at me....everyday. I knew it...but I sat on the fence....afraid....wanting the security of the familar...and of what was comfortable.
But more and more the comfortable started feeling uncomfortable. I constantly felt the tug....the pull...to go in another direction. This week...I took the risk. I resigned from my job. But not before I was told I had been given enough compensation for what had happened to me.....all those years terrorized....and struggling to survive. He's provided in overwhelming ways.
After I resigned....a call came....a woman....well known in the community....wants to help me tell my story insisting others need to hear...that nothing is impossible to overcome.
Another call came. Another woman. Someone in a city not too far away...a pastor's wife....she was given a copy of my book. Wants to meet....has people in her congregation that need to hear my story.
My heart burns to tell...and show that in Him...there's freedom....no matter how dark it looks. I took a step in faith...and feel a song in my soul..that I'm on the right road.....
I only want to follow where He leads. Show me your ways O Lord......
