Every single day we are faced with challenges or opportunities.  All depends on the perspective you are looking at the obstacle.  Every single challenge in your life is an opportunity to improve, to test yourself and grow.  Every failure is an opportunity to learn and grow.  So, when you decide to look at all challenges, failures and obstacles as opportunities for success and face them head on you are stepping out on faith.  And the strength of your faith is only as strong as you are willing to test it.

Fear and stagnation is the death many people.  Fear of failure, so one decides to stay in the comfortable situation also known as stagnation.  Staying in the comfortable situation when the good Lord is opening doors for you is the most tragic failure of them all.  When that door opens and the light comes through so bright, and you can’t see what is beyond the door threshold excitement sets in, but also fear sets in.  If you choose to face the fear and walk into the light with only your faith, you are stepping into opportunity for great success.  If you look at the door and the light coming through and you don’t take a step forward you will never reach your true and full potential.  You will never develop a stronger faith, because a strong faith is only forged through the fires, struggles, and trials that come from you willing to take the step and face that opportunity.

Fear is the number one thing that keeps people from being their best.  Fear of failure.  Failure is the greatest thing that can happen too us if used properly.  Focusing on the failure or the possibility of failure instead of learning quickly and adapting to better your situation is the only failure.  Or giving up which is the worst and biggest failure of all.  Do not let fear control your faith, let your faith conquer the fear and allow you to use failures as learning experience to empower you to create your greatest contribution to your life, your family, and your community.

Every person has opportunity to do great things and create great value.  So walk through the door even though you can’t see what’s on the other side waiting.  Face the blinding light with only your faith, and trust that faith to help you and guide you.  There will be a wide path with narrow parts but it is your faith that will keep you going and growing.  During that struggle for success you will begin to grow and develop into the best version of you.  You will bring your best value; you will be successful.  You can’t do that if you don’t take that step.   So many are limited by fear, and only faith, an unwavering faith can give you the strength and determination to face that fear.

Ask yourself.  When the door opens what will I do?

Philippians 4:13.  “I can do all things through Christ who Strengthens me.”
