Nudged into Obedience

Have you ever been nudged?

I have. Sometimes it's a gentle nudge with someone trying to get my attention. Sometimes it's more persistent, like that of a toddler wanting more, more, more. Today I find myself submitting to the nudge that's been poking me for more than a year. I confided in a friend yesterday how hard it is to admit when you're excited about something where you could fail so publicly. How hard it is to tell people, "Hey, I'm going to do ...," and stare into their stunned face silently judging me. Ridiculing me. Waiting to hear me fail.

"That's not for you to worry about, Stephanie," she said. "It's for you to be obedient to your calling - whether you fail or not." Wow. She's right.

So here I go! Nudged into action. Intentionally moving forward. I'll let you know how it goes!
