Courage to do Anything

Posted: March 31, 2013 in Uncategorized

I realise that I lack courage.

I wan to try new things, but I hesitate because of my lack of courage. I realise this because during my snow try I gave up, not because I wanted to but because I was afraid & the same went for skiing. I went up the mountain on the skis & I could have gone down on the skis, but my fear paralysed me.

Fear is a very powerful emotion.

Fear can dictate our entire lives, regardless of how people may perceive us, our external is not exactly how our internal behaves.

In my head I am very adventurous, out-going, social & fearless.
In my head I achieve so much & help so many people, but in reality my fear holds me back.

I don’t know where my fear originates from as my mother is very out-going & an achiever of great things. My father is a to getter & very much a performer.

I seem to hide away, not achieving my full potential & never sharing my thoughts or ideas.

I am on a quest at present; I want to invest in a charity, whether it be my time or money. I blame my fear for not being able to speak up.

The snow trip I went on was mainly to get more knowledge on The A21 Campaign, but I came away less informed & with all those involved so unapproachable I have struck it off my list of charities. There is one that is top of my list & that’s got more of a long-term direction & that’s Many Hopes.

I went to a charity event they hosted & their founder really was down-to-earth & spoke honestly. As I am so cynical, I would need to go to a more low-key event to find out more like I did for A21.

But… Many Hopes may be hitting my heart, it doesn’t feel right for me. I want something that I am much more passionate about & they don’t seem to be it. I thought A21 was going to be, but there are other slavery charities on my list. Some of them are:
William Wilberforce Trust
Stop the Traffik
Refuge
Sophie Hayes Foundation-
Just to name a few.

One thing I do realise is; if I can’t face my fears how can I be an ambassador for any charity?
Especially when I feel my heart is drawn to charity work aimed at making people feel a value for their lives.

How do you become worthy?
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7 NIV)
