On Fridays I join The Gypsy Mama for…
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..

Today’s word:  Path

You make known to me the path of life; 
    you will fill me with joy in your presence, 
    with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Psalm 16:11
This scripture came to mind the minute I saw the word…PATH.
I am so afraid.  As I embark on a new path I am SO afraid.
Afraid of failure.
Afraid of messing up.  Isn’t that normal?  Being afraid of messing up, I mean.
I don’t fail at many things.  I am usually successful, but right now I am walking a TOTALLY. NEW. PATH.
And it scares the heck out of me.
I was so scared earlier this week I was literally paralyzed with fear.  I didn’t do anything for a couple of hours while I just reflected on how afraid I am.
Silly, isn’t it?  I follow a path I am CERTAIN he has laid before me.  So why in the world am I afraid?  
I know he will hold my hand.  
I know he will carry me if needed.
I know that I will be surrounded by friends.
Still…I am afraid of this path.
It is new.
And different.
And nothing like any path I have ever traveled before.
So, I will trust in Him to lead and guide me.
To hold my hand.
To reassure me that if He directed me to this path, then He will lead me through it…down it…whatever…He will handle it.
Scary…this new path I’m on.
