Fruition is the point at which a plan or project is realized. For many of us, that is a good thing, but for some of us that is very fearful. It is like I spent my whole life waiting on this one thing and now it is here and I don’t know what to do with it.
Have you ever looked in the mirror and knew you were called to so much more, but were afraid to go after it? It sounds so crazy but it is a reality for many. I realized that the fear I carried was not only about failing, but the fear of succeeding. What if the things I desire to do actually work out and what if it gains traction? What if people begin to know my name? Those things were very scary for me to think about.
I am a person that doesn’t like to be seen and wants to stay in the background but the calling on my life is pulling me out and as God calls me out and calls me deeper he is simultaneously revealing and pulling back the veil. He is causing me to realize who I am. It wasn’t that I didn’t know but I hoped if I stay quiet and in my corner then maybe he would just pass me by and not see me. That hasn’t been the case.
Over the last few months or so, God has been peeling back the layers of me that have caused me to become the way that I am. He has been driving back the fears and changing my mentality on how I feel about myself and the things that I have been through. In that peeling, he has done a lot of revealing.
The woman who I tried to be was no longer existent and I have been left with the woman God has truly created me to be. It is like coming into a new skin and trying to get comfortable in this new place.
You cannot keep running from the plans and purposes of God for your life. You are who you are. You don’t have to be afraid to be unapologetically you. Everyone will not get it or understand it, but as long as God says so, that is all that should matter.
I spent too much time trying to hide and be hidden. Maybe you feel the same way. You have been called out to a greater level or deeper depths, but you are hiding and trying to keep from being seen. The light is coming and has already come. God is trying to reveal you, not for the sake of you being seen, but for the sake of His glory being revealed through you. Stop making excuses for not being who you are called to be. Walk in it with assurance and boldness.
It is time to take off the garment of fear and put on the garment of fruition. It is time for things to manifest in your life. Stop holding yourself back and go all in with it.
