Why Am I Dragging My Feet?

I am, you know.  Dragging my feet, that is.

Why?

I’m afraid.  I’m afraid because my life is either going to change or another door is going to slam shut in my face.  And I don’t know which it’s going to be.  I’m afraid because I want change; I’m not sure how much more of the same I can take.  I’m afraid to have another dream die a slow and painful death.  I’m afraid because if things do change, things are really going to change. I’m afraid because change means new and unknown, and I’m a creature of habit.  I’m afraid of how hard this change is going to be; of how this change is going to find me lacking.

But I have to take this step.  This one last step in this season.

So I’m going to take a few deep breaths.  And then I’m going to fix my eyes on Jesus, and I’m going to put one foot in front of the other and go where He leads, wherever that is.

 

Walk on the Water

by Britt Nicole

You look around
It’s staring back at you
Another wave of doubt
Will it pull you under
You wonder

What if I’m overtaken
What if I never make it
What if no one’s there?
Will you hear my prayer?

When you take that first step
Into the unknown
You know that He won’t let you go

[Chorus:]
So what are you waiting for?
What do you have to lose?
Your insecurities try to alter you

You know you’re made for more
So don’t be afraid to move
Your faith is all
It takes in you
You can walk on the water too

So get out
And let your fear fall to the ground
No time to waste
Don’t wait
Don’t you turn around and miss out
Everything you were made for
I know you’re not sure
So you play it safe
Try to run away
