I've been feeling semi-overwhelmed at the thought of starting again and the root of the problem is fear. Fear of loss. Fear of choosing the wrong country. Fear of not having the money we need. Fear of what others will think. Fear of failure.
The problem for me is this - if I am choosing fear it means I am not choosing trust. This thing called fear is keeping me from reaching the potential God has for my life. If I don't step out in faith by filling out an application or applying for a grant then I have put fear above what God can do.
God has brought me to this place. Lord, help me to be "an ounce more devoted than I am afraid".
But when I am afraid,I will put my trust in you.I praise God for what he has promised.I trust in God, so why should I be afraid?What can mere mortals do to me?Psalm 56:3-4
