Second Guessing

After so many rejections, you can start to second guess yourself. You start wondering if you really were called by God. Maybe it was just my overactive imagination. I should probably quit now and just be content with my grown up job and let go of these childish dreams. It’s when these thoughts fill your mind that you have to force yourself to keep going.

You’re not really second guessing yourself, you’re second guessing God. If He has called you to do something and you have repeatedly received confirmation that you have been called to do it, don’t sabotage your future by doubting. Rejection will come but that doesn’t mean that it’s the end. It only means God has something better planned. Once He opens the door no man will be able to close it.

Now, get up, dust yourself off and keep doing what you know you were called to do.

“For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again.” Proverbs 24:16 NIV
