Welcome to my blog…a safe place to think, feel, and be honest about loss and life, fear and freedom. We can talk together about our struggles, our joys, our sorrows, our victories.
Fear often grips me, blocking my faith and dashing my confidence. Fear of rejection–based on caring too much what others think of what I’ve done or said–is what trips me up the most. Finally I’m seeing progress, encouraging progress.
What fear are you facing in your life? It may be fear of what lies ahead because of the loss of someone you love. Perhaps, as you contemplate stepping out to realize a dream or live out your mission and passion, you tell yourself you’ll never succeed, never make a difference. Maybe you are caught in the web of caring too much what people think of your performance, your idea, your appearance.
What is God’s view about our fears? He knows we will experience fear as we journey through life! That’s why He affirms that He will be with us each step of the way, in each situation.
“Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
Surely, I will uphold you with My Righteous right hand.”
Isaiah 41: 10 (NASB)
We are not alone. He promises to hold us up. As we grasp His hand, we can experience His strength and ability to live above fear.
Journeying with you toward freedom!
