Over the last few weeks I have been writing a lot about taking risks. Mostly about other people taking risks, and stepping out of their comfort zone. It’s so much more comfortable to talk about others who are not. That’s all changing today. Tonight, I am taking this writing party to the air waves. I am been asked to be a guest on a radio show about parenting. Now, I know that I have been giving my jaw muscles quite a lot of training over the last few years as I spend almost all day talking into the phone on conference calls, but for some reason these seems so different. Plus the subject is parenting – a subject I don’t claim to be an expert in, more like a fly by the seat of your pants learner. I really hope that the poor grammar that shows up in my writing does not make it to the airwaves!
I find myself a little excited about the challenge. It’s a chance for personal growth and an opportunity to reach out and impact other people – hopefully in a positive way! However, I am really anxious about leaving my comfort zone. So here is a little encouragement from Paul, that should help us all make it through the day.
1If you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, 2then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. 3Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Philippians 2:1-3 (New International Version)
13I can do everything through him who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13 (New International Version)
And I hope that you are all encouraged and motivated to step out in some way today as well!
