Do you ever feel the nudge to do something, author’s lounge, but fear, inadequacy or embarrassment keeps you from moving forward on it? I remember when My Heart’s Therapy came out that I felt like God was going to use that as a basis for me to speak to women and encourage them on their life journey. Just as words flowed freely when I wrote my songs, they seemed to come out of nowhere in the form of a presentation or speech. I never liked speech in school. I, also, have a fear and dislike for public speaking. Now what?
I am a nobody, Lord, can’t you see?
Don’t you want somebody greater than me?
I don’t think I’m the person you think I am.
Why do you keep telling me that I can?
I don’t feel that it’s in me that much is clear
And yet you keep telling me I should not fear.
I know deep down I really believe
If I open my heart and truly receive
Your message of go
I will not say no
And I pray every day
The will to obey
Your command that I hear
Oh, Lord, please draw near.
I will step out in faith.
I will not say, “wait!”
Don’t let go of me now
Because soon I’ll be in front of a crowd.
And so I don’t freak,
Give me the words to speak.
Open my mouth
And let your love come out. – BK 8/23/2016
Step out, authors lounge! Be brave. Take a chance. Be blessed for saying YES!
