i believe God uses all kinds of methods to speak to our hearts. to inspire us. to grow us. i came across a quote in a press release today. the press release was detailing the next 4 years of a professional athlete's life, possibly the best mountain ultra runner ever named Kilian Jornet. the quote is from Pablo Coelho,
"There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve; the fear of failure."
it's time to go on the offensive, and God is using films like this to speak to my heart. sure, it stirs the runner/adventurer in me. but it stirs something even deeper in me. we were not created to solely enjoy life on a physical level. no, it's much deeper than this video can portray. nonetheless, God's using this to help melt away all fear.
really, can there be any fear, when one fully comprehends their identity in the Father? i'm a son of the living God! i'm His son! so how can i fail! the only failure would be to walk away from Him, and that is something i will never do.
in case you still haven't watched this short, 2 minute trailer, do yourself a favor and click here.
then, ask yourself what fears you need to overcome. better yet, post on this blog. let's help each other along on this journey. let's inspire each other with tales of how God has come through for us once we began to face fear head on. i'll celebrate with you! join me!
