We’ve all faced that moment: feeling called to something, have a desire for something, and thinking “nah, that can’t be for me it’s too _____.” We’ve been there. The crazy difficult or different calling.
“Why would God choose me to do that?”
“What would people think?”
Today, Angela Braniff joins us to chat through her calling, how it’s crazy different, unique and beautiful all at the same time and how her bold “yes” changed everything. It’s easy to opt out, say “ehh” or pass it off to someone else. But, what could happen, what would you learn, how much goodness would you see if you said “yes?”
