The areas of your life that get hit hardest are often the ones for which you’re most gifted. The enemy desperately wants you to equate the desires of your heart with fears of failure, rejection, loss, and lack, so you won’t take risks to pursue what God has uniquely blessed and qualified you to do.
Fight back by thanking God for the blessings you do have, until his love, joy, and peace overwhelm the fears, comfort the losses, and heal the pain. Then let him show you where your spiritual gifts and unique passions converge with your talents and experience. And go there.
“Keep trusting in the Lord and do what is right in his eyes. Fix your heart on the promises of God and you will be secure, feasting on his faithfulness. Make God the utmost delight and pleasure of your life, and he will provide the desires of your heart” (Psalm 34:3-4).
