Trish---I love your comment because it encourages us to toss away our fears and really LIVE by taking action. I think this is true in so many areas of our lives, including missionary efforts. We wait and wait and wait for the perfect situation or the perfect candidate instead of sharing the gospel on a regular basis.

I have some acquaintances with this affliction, and one of their hold-ups is that they don't move because they want their eventual movement to be perfect. They so fear making a mistake, or not getting something absolutely correct the first time, that they fail to do anything at all. Perfectionism stalls us in many ways. Long ago I learned to just throw all caution to the wind and jump in to a decision. Life is messy, and we can clean up the messes as we go. But quite frequently, no messes occur. Just progress!
