As an advocate for taking chances and living life abundantly, it pains me to see talented people living in bondage because of F.E.A.R. - False Emotions Appearing Real... I've witnessed several people procrastinate on their dreams due to the lack of faith. Hebrews (KJV) 11:1 says, "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." That "now faith" is believing that God will immediately act on your behalf. I enacted my "now faith" in May 2015 when I decided to pursue editing fulltime while finalizing the release of my debut children's book "Jane's Precious Jewel."
Thanks to my "now faith," I have developed W.I.N.G.S. - Winning Intentionally, Naturally Gaining Success. When I activated my "now faith," I made a conscious decision to win regardless of any obstacles that I might encounter along the way. I intended to win, and my success has come naturally. While I have invested a lot of time and energy into becoming a successful author, motivational speaker, and youth advocate, my natural drive and perseverance have yielded natural success.
Don't let the F.E.A.R. of failure, the F.E.A.R. of not being accepted, or any other F.E.A.R. cause you to keep your "now faith" deactivated. Limiting yourself will only keep you in bondage, and you will never develop your W.I.N.G.S.
I hope this helps someone soar... Happy Saturday!
