I'm wondering out loud if I've become somewhat afraid of risk and failure.
Hearing a few speakers today in the background as I worked on other things stirred my heart that maybe, just maybe, I've gotten afraid of what I might lose by trying something and failing. I know I began ministry with a high risk tolerance but I'm questioning myself if I've late that fade to the background in the name of keeping and saving what I already "have".
Have I stopped being confident enough in who I am in God that I can tolerate betting the farm to do whatever He is asking? Am I still willing to take any risk to reach and love people?
This will be a touchstone of prayer for me. I need to hear from Jesus on this.
