I’m Gonna Jump!

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
 2 Timothy 1:7

I can’t take it anymore.  I’m gonna jump…

The above verse is stitched on the bible case, I’ve toted my bible to and fro in for almost 20 years.  And you know what?  It still challenges me as Jesus extends invitations to which I can respond with fear or FAITH.

Right now I serve notice to whatever fears hold me back from writing the book God is giving me the words to type:  I’m…gonna…jump!

Actually, writing this particular post is my second jump.  I first jumped 3 weeks ago when I started writing (again) a book to encourage mothers.  It’s a passion I’ve had for years and something I can’t shake.  The responsibilities of motherhood, doubts about my worthiness to write on the subject, and potential rejection are the excuses and fears that have kept me silent so long.

Well, no more.  It’s not about me.  It’s about what God chooses to do through me.  So I’m gonna jump; knowing that I’m not free-falling, I’m being carried.  I will write what He gives me and walk through the doors He opens.

I do hope to share this aspect of my parenting journey on the blog as well.  Haven’t quite figured out how I will incorporate that yet.  This is all new to me and as you can tell from my posts, cluelessness is not a comfortable place for me…hence the title!

Encouragement and positive feedback especially from authors published or not, is much appreciated.  Thank you to those who follow this blog.  Your company has been a blessing!


  1. Please jump. I went through the same fears and misguided thoughts, when I struggled with the idea of writing a book I felt God was putting on my heart. I jumped, and started writing. I don’t know what God’s plan is for my book; I don’t know if I will ever try to get it published. But I do know that God has changed me tremendously during this writing journey. He can change you too.
