Courage. That’s what I’m going to need tomorrow morning. Lots and lots of courage. I’m doing something that I’m always afraid of doing – I’m going to a new exercise class tomorrow. It’s called BodyPump and I know that I can do the work but I’m afraid of doing it in front of other people.
That’s the problem, isn’t it?
I see it as doing the work in FRONT of and not WITH. If I’m doing it WITH them then I won’t fail or fall short but if I’m doing it in FRONT of them then I can fail miserably.
I guess it’s not courage that I need. It’s perspective. Jesus said the truth will set you free. And the truth is that this is just a class and the only failure is not giving it a try. This class does not define who I am as a woman, an athlete, or as a potential friend unless I give it the power to do so.
God, please give me your perspective on this and all areas of my life. Please don’t let me limit myself because of how I see myself but let me live life to the fullest because that’s the gift your Son has given me….
