Brave Enough to Walk Through the Door

We’ve all heard the saying, “when God shuts a door, He opens a window.” What if God opens the door though? Are you brave enough to walk through the door?

That’s where I’m at….I need to walk through the door.

I’ve felt the call to write for so long but always make excuses.  Many times others have told me, “you should write.” I just smile and say, “thank you” but never act on it. I can’t do that anymore, I have to be brave enough to walk through the door God has opened.

So here I am taking the first step through the door by writing a blog.  Scary. Intimidating. Daunting.  Just a few words that describe this step. I’ve asked myself so many questions about doing this. Where do I start? How do I start? What if I don’t know what to write? What if my grammar is horrible? What if no one reads what I write? The most haunting question though….what if I fail?

Aren’t I failing though if I don’t do anything at all?

So here I am,  trusting Him to equip me for what He has called me to do, to write. With a new journal from my Husband for encouragement to write and a new blog to fill with post I’m walking through the door He has opened.

This is a short and sweet post, a kind of get my feet wet post. I hope you’ll come back to read more. To learn the meaning behind calling my blog Green August(I’ll give you a hint, there’s more than one reason why). To read about my personal project for the year, “Fifty-two of You”.  To see where I go with writing.

I’m excited to see where God leads me and how He equips me now that I’ve been brave enough to walk through the door.

equip you with everything good that you may do his will, working in us that which is pleasing in his sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever.  Amen. Hebrews 13:21(ESV)
