Why Not Today?

What holds us back from starting right now?

That project we've been wanting to try? That business we've wanted to open? Even something as simple as cleaning up the home....what holds us back?

Is it fear?

Fear that we'll fail.
Fear that it won't be good enough.
Fear that we won't finish.
Fear that there isn't enough time.
Fear that there isn't enough money.

God tells us

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
Philipians 4:6

What do we truly have to fear with God on our side?

How many verses are there in the Bible telling us to trust Him?

Here alone, there are eighty!

How can we possibly think we know better than God when he tells us just to trust him and all things will work together for good?

We may not succeed, but he will give us strength to try again.
We may not be good enough but He will love us still.
We may not finish but he will delight in our hard work.
We may not have enough time but we will be with Him for eternity.
We may not have enough money, but He promises to provide.

Truly, what do we have to worry about? What do we have to fear? What do we have to not trust him on?

In all we do, let us surrender to Him. His plans for us are so much more incredible for us than our own!

So why not start today? Tomorrow is not a guarantee
