Standing at the side of a pool wondering if the water will be warm, cold, refreshing, relaxing, scary, stressful. Awkwardness starts to rush over me, who's looking at me, what are they thinking. Saying stop it, stop it in my brain but can't cause I am so concerned of looking ridiculous. What ifs are now flooding my mind, of course all negative. Will I actually be able to swim this time or will I sink to the bottom again. Then, I finally decide to put my toes slightly in the water...How long will it take before I jump in carefree and unafraid, not sure. But, I am jumping in the water and expecting God to overflow in my life. I may be slightly afraid, OK really nervous, but I am going. I believe this time it will happen! So here I go jumping in the water of a new journey of the unknown. Feeling "Empowered" knowing God is for me!
Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage. Galatians 5:1
We can do this ladies, stay strong, hold the line, call out to God for that is where are help comes from.
