What scares you? What scares me?
Can you verbalize it? Do you even know what makes your heart start pounding, your blood run cold and your eyes glass over?
I don’t think I know for myself. I am fearful of sitting down to think about and fully realize what scares me. A few things sit on the edge of my mind that I am aware of, but I don’t want to verbalize them. I don’t want to think about them for fear of them coming to be.
How do we attempt to live fearlessly with these fears lurking in the shadows of our minds? I don’t think we can, allowing them to lurk gives them power over us. I think we eventually need to realize these fears, accept them as our fears and then believe through faith that if these fears come to be, God will still lead us through the valley to an even higher mountain beyond.
Habakkuk 2:4 says it and Paul repeats it in Hebrews 10:38, “The just shall live by faith.” By faith is the way God planned for us to live out our lives, day in, day out, minute by minute.
I want to live fearlessly… I want to live by faith!
I have work to do, and if you are not already there, I hope you will join me, my friends!
