Don't Worry! Take ACTION! So...why do people keep talking themselves out of taking ACTION! Mel Robbins says, "Our brain is hardwired to protect us and when we hesitate for a second from taking action, our brain goes into override into protect mode...making you think of the “Why’s” that will keep you from taking immediate ACTION at the right time. Jesus talks about worry as a lack of faith. He then says, stop worrying and instead seek first the Kingdom of God and all these things you are worrying about will be taken care of.

I can not tell you the amount of times I have walked on public school campuses knowing it was not going to be easy. Easy would have been staying on my church campus and waiting for everyone to come to me.

I can tell you the many times I talked myself out of it and my excuses. I can tell you that every time I went to schools, after school, parent, student, teachers, coaches and administrators events that I would say, “Why am I here?”, and the number of times someone or several others come to me and say how much it meant to them or some crisis was averted.

How about you? What ACTION do you need to take? 5-4-3-2-1 Go!
