In Others’ Words: The Freedom of Security
“Do exactly what you would do if you felt most secure.”
I kept mulling over today’s quote as I wrote my blog post. Do I believe it? Embrace it as true? Think it’s good advice to be followed?
I’m all about honesty, after having faked my way through life for too, too long. I stopped pretending I was someone else a number of years ago. I like myself, but that doesn’t mean that I like every single chapter of my life story. But when I look in the mirror, I now acknowledge the complete story of who I am.
Just like everyone else, at times I struggle with insecurity. Today’s quote suggests that I get past those moments of “I think I can’t” by choosing to act out of a sense of security. Ignoring my wavering emotions. Silencing self-doubt by choosing to remember when I felt secure in who I am — and letting those truths spur my actions.
If I always rested in the security of who I am — forgiven, chosen, beloved, creative, braver than I ever thought — what would I do?
I’d dream out loud more often … and invite others to dream out loud too.
I’d compete only against myself — and enjoy the challenge.
I’d trust God’s love with reckless abandon — and never, ever, ever let the enemy be my voice of authority.
In Your Words: What would you do if you felt most secure? Or, even better, what do you do when you feel most secure?
