I, recently, came across a fellow blogger who wrote of these same feelings and I realized that there are many of us out there who feel the same way. I guess we all start out feeling insecure, not sure whether we should step out. It doesn't matter how many people read or view, what matters is that you are doing NOW what you plan, create, dream, be it art, photography, writing, cooking, or anything else. I find a lot of joy in being creative, whether that's in taking a picture, playing the piano, drawing something new, learning a new skill. Fear is a strangler, it sucks our life right out of us and kills our joy. We all hold back doing what we love because we are held by the power of fear and insecurity. I hope to change that, with God's help. So, what will it be...
Counting my Gifts one by one

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
