when timidity is holding you back

Fear. Something most of us struggle with at some point or season in our lives.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was watching a preview for an upcoming movie (Christopher Robin) when I caught sight of Piglet, and was reminded how much I used to relate to that character.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
TIMID.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Scared almost of my own shadow, hiding behind my fear and staying out of sight behind others.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Can you relate, friend?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It took a wise woman and a loving God to reveal this fear to me, and allow Him to bring it into the Light of His Presence. And boy, how that Light shone brightly into this shadowy fear which had made itself very at home within me.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
With a few words, His Word shattered timidity’s hold on me, as it restored me:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

“For the Spirit God gave us does NOT make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7 NIV

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s time to step into who God is calling us to be, and leave the things that hinder and hurt us in the rearview mirror.

Ask Him to show you where you are timidly settling for less than His best for you, and watch Him as He moves to restore you!
