You don’t know what you’re doing

Have you ever started anything in your life? Building a model airplane? Driving a car? First day at school or work?  Cooking an omelette for the first time? Riding a bicycle? Remember when you just got married? The list goes on. Maybe, if you are like me, you didn’t know what you were doing at first. And that is OK.

Nobody really knew what they were doing when they just started something. Did Moses have a clear picture of what he was doing after being told to free his people? Did young David know what he was doing when Samuel anointed him as King? Or Joshua when he was called to fight for his people? If you’re a first born child, ask your parents if they knew what they were doing when you first showed up.

Not knowing what you are doing is an inevitable part of growth that you cannot avoid

There is good news for us and that is: you will get the hang of it. The key is to not get stuck where you are, but to acknowledge your own limitations, be humble and learn along the way.
