Today we are going to embrace our inner donkey. Yep, you read that correctly! So many of us feel like donkeys in a world that celebrates racehorses. You know, the shiny and flashy success stories that make us question our own worth and abilities.
But life isn’t about competing for gold medals. It’s about discovering our own mettle, or understanding our unique strengths and using them to mine all the gold that God already put within us.
You may act like you’ve got it all together, but inside you’re asking, “Am I enough?” No matter how good we may look on the outside, the nagging voice of self-doubt is hard to shake. Well, it’s time to get honest about self-doubt … and then kick it to the curb!
Author Erica Wiggenhorn joins me on the 4:13 Podcast and draws from the story of Moses—the greatest self-doubter in the Bible—to show us the lethal connection between self-doubt and self-reliance. You’ll learn that relying on your own power only reveals your inadequacy. But relying on God’s power instead helps you stomp on that nagging doubt.
“I can’t believe I am 53 years old! I don’t feel qualified to be this age.”
That’s what I told Phil as we drove home from seeing our new grandbaby.
He laughed and reminded me that I say that about most areas of my life. Unfortunately, he is right.
I mean, there have been days I’ve thought, What am I doing writing blogs and books? I am way too under-qualified to write – like I have all this life stuff figured out?!
Or, I will be standing in front of my kitchen sink, self-doubt covering my heart and suds covering my hands, reviewing my latest parenting issue and think, Why can’t I master this mom-job? It feels so much bigger than me.
Or, inevitably before I get on stage to speak, I’ve fought the feeling that I am too immature or too inexperienced or too inadequate to open my mouth!
Do you ever feel out of your league when it comes to living your life, or pulling off your purpose, or following your calling?
