5 Minute Friday - Doubt

It creeps in again. Today. A door closing and another one opening. And I doubt myself. Doubt what I know is true, what's in my heart, how far He has brought me. It would keep me here, safe and comfortable in what I know. Because I could stop. I could stay right here. But the one thing that has changed in me over these months is that I can't settle for okay. For second best. His voice has to be louder than the doubt that seeks to paralyze me with fear. And it is. Even when it's just a whisper. Because what I have learned along the way is to never doubt His goodness, His guidance, His willingness to continually change me for the better. And I have truly learned to just do it afraid. Because the what ifs can turn quickly into regrets. And I can't live my life that way. So one last day leads to a new day one. And I don't have to doubt myself or wonder how or why. He leads me. Thankful.


  1. Your post reminds me of John 10:10 A thief comes only to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance. Thank you for sharing your encouragement to "just do it afraid." I hope you have a lovely weekend.

  2. "His voice has to be louder than the doubt that seeks to paralyze me with fear." Love this! That is where I am right now, too. Following Him and taking the next step toward growth.

  4. Yes. He does speak louder and cast away the fears, doesn't He? This piece resonated with me because I've felt so many of these things, too. Blessings to you!
