I used to find safety in keeping my thoughts to myself. Tucking them away so others wouldn't or couldn't judge me. I hid myself well, I think.
Time went on, and I realized that playing safe was keeping me from reaching my potential. The fear of judgement stole the one thing that has been bringing much enjoyment these past few year ... sharing my voice ... sharing my stories.
I don't think that playing safe should be our default as a Believer I am sure I should be bold in my talents (not without humility though) and sharing the Truth I am learning day by day when I sit at His feet. We are called to walk out our faith with a great power which resides within us not with timidity or fear.
Safety is good for certain things like looking both ways before crossing the street, but we must remember to not allow our fear to hinder us for the sake of being safe.
