1. Danya,
    What a message for our times. If there was ever a time that we need to “do it scared” it’s now. Often it’s not easy to give our testimony and to give the reason for the hope we have within us, but we are called to be obedient and even though suffering may be involved, we are still called by the One who gives us everlasting life. Loved this post! All my best to Rachel as well!!

    1. Bev, thank you for your encouraging reply. I totally agree it’s not easy to give our testimony, to boldly proclaim our faith in Jesus in this world. May we “do it scared” together and love each other as Jesus would. It’s not easy. A mentor told me once, “the stars are brightest in the darkest of night.” That’s us as believers. You shine, Bev. You shine. Matthew 5:16

  2. Danya, I’m going to remember that little three word exhortation, because I see the Lord leading me into some areas that definitely feel “too big” for me. And yet, I want to be obedient and to seize every opportunity to glorify Him. So thankful for these words: Do it Scared!

    1. Michelle, thank you for your encouraging reply. It sounds like God is calling you to take a leap of faith. My Mom told me once that “fear not” is found 365 times in the Bible, once for each day of the year. I am praying for your discernment and courage as you say “Here I am, Lord” to God’s next assignment for you. Yes, let’s continue to “do it scared.” God is with you and will never leave you nor forsake you. Be encouraged, Michelle.

  3. Yes, I want to be bold and not worry about people’s reaction! I don’t live for their approval.

    1. Amen, Sarah! I’m cheering you on and praying for your courage and boldness as God leads you.

  4. “Do it scared”! I just love that statement. I think so many times we let our fears get in the way of our obedience to God. I know I have. Then God took me to a place of no return so to speak. When my child was hurting, I stepped out into doing things I would never have dreamed I could do. I listened to God’s voice, and I moved. Of course, he didn’t leave me there he keeps pushing, and now I have turned our pain to helping others through speaking and writing. Again things I never thought I would be capable of. Thank you for your post. “Do it scared” my new motto.

  5. Maree Dee, thank you for your encouraging words. I totally agree with you that our fears get in the way from God’s assignments for our life. I’m so proud of you for the courage you had when your child was hurting and that you still have. God continues to call you into His new assignments. You can do it, my friend.

    I keep thinking about when God called Joshua to lead the people into the Promised Land. Moses had led them well for 40 years, so Joshua had big shoes to fill. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”–Joshua 1:9
