When is a risk, not a risk…..
I would like to encourage you to visit Scott Kelby’s blog today, right now!!! I’m so very proud of Scott for doing what he is doing. He has written a book, o.k. lots and lots of books, but this one is real departure for him. He explains how it came about far better than I could so watch his 5 minute video where he talks about his new book, then come back and let me finish the entry!
If you come to this blog, you certainly know that I have devoted my life to Jesus Christ, and you know that I have no problem, whatsoever, standing up for my faith. I’ve know Scott for a long time and I’ve known he is a devoted Christian, and a wonderful father and husband, but he is not overt about his faith. Don’t get me wrong if you’ve ever read any of his books, his stand is right there in black and white, but he doesn’t wear it on his shoulder, ( like some people we know! ) I’m sure Scott knows that coming out in the open like this might upset some people, and that is why I’m proud of him. He did it anyway. The scripture is very clear that if we are ashamed of Him He will be ashamed of us. Scott certainly is not ashamed of his relationship with Jesus.
Have I taken a big risk by being so open about my walk with Him? Yes and no, yes in that people can, and have, reacted to me the same as they will with Scott. The difference is I’m not Scott Kelby. Scott has an enormous following and has earned the respect and popularity with many, many people. I know he knows, that this could not set well with a small portion those that follow his career. The question is, if God calls you to do something, can you let that stop you? We both know the answer to that, we can’t. What Scott will learn is that when you make a stand for Him, He will bless you beyond measure! How do I know this? Well, if you have been here more than a few times you know that is exactly what He has done for me.
I’m very happy for Scott, because he has opened the door for even greater blessings than he has already received, and boy has he been blessed with a great family and wonderful people to work with. Some would say that if you step out and proclaim your faith that you are taking a risk, I would say if you truly know Him, and don’t step out, that is the biggest risk of all!
I will be praying that God greatly honors Scotts releasing of this book. That is an easy prayer to pray, because I know it is always God’s will that we make a stand for Him!
