are you ready to start at zero 2012Are You Ready To Start at Zero?

I will soon be starting out a new life in a new country, in a totally different kind of world from the one I knew and grew up in.

Although there is a very exciting feeling, there is also a certain fear that bothers me. Because for the first time in a long time, I will get out of my comfort zone. And what a great leap it will be!

Am I ready to start out at zero again? Am I ready to start where I have to find a new job, a new house, a new set of friends, and a whole new way of living altogether?

We are often afraid to start back at zero. We’re afraid to set aside everything we’ve learned, everything we’ve ever worked for and accomplished, and that led us to where we are today.

Thinking about it though, what are we so afraid of? So what if we start at zero again? Didn’t we all start at zero when we were born?

We all started out as fragile helpless little babies who could do nothing but cry, and yet look at where we are today!

Are we less able then than newborn babies are? Are we less equipped? Are we even more vulnerable than they?

It is a miracle how babies come to life, and how they grow up to become like you and me. God still works His miracles today. And if we only be willing, He’d do the same for us, even if we should start back at zero over again.

“Your companion for healing."

“The deepest wounds of the soul are healed only by compassion… People do not merely need to be clothed, they need to be embraced with love. A love that enters into their own fears and frailty, a love that suffers with them and stays with them through their darkest hour.”
