Have you ever said you would never do something? My mother, a wise woman, gave me advice that has been a constant reminder to my siblings and me. “Never say never as it will always come back to haunt you.”
As Christians, what do we do that gets in our way of serving as God has called us? Are the nevers in our lives getting in the way of serving God? What caused the nevers? Was it fear of the unknown?
The nevers in my life have come from fear of what could happen if I let God take control. Open your heart, listen for God, then step out in faith and don’t allow fear to create another never. The feeling of giving up control to God is awesome.
