Over the Threshold
Have you ever had a dream, but never imagined you would have the opportunity to walk into it one day?
What happens when an opportunity comes to your doorstep and your dream is within your reach? There is great excitement until you realize you must step into the doorway and over the threshold into the unknown in order to have a chance to make that dream a reality. It is here that fear and insecurity grip you with the greatest intensity. The excitement quickly recedes and gives way to unparalleled doubt. Your mind is besieged by thoughts like…What if I take a step through the door and fall flat on my face? What if I fail? What if I make a fool of myself? Who am I to think I can do this? What if I am not good enough? What if I am not capable? What if I don’t know what to do?
While there are no guarantees of success, one thing is guaranteed…You will never know if you could’ve if you don’t step through that door! You will be left with a lingering emptiness, wondering if you should’ve tried forevermore.
My friend, fear wants you to focus on the cost of going through the door, implying there is no cost for staying put. Don’t listen to the lie! There is a cost either way, but only one is guaranteed. If you don’t walk through that door it will cost you your dream.
Is it worth it dear one?
May you step through the door and over the threshold today!
