I find it most intriguing that fear has been at the forefront of my mind the entire 8 months 10 days of 2010. I didn’t choose a word to live by or model my life after like Alece’s Risk or Mandy’s Childlike. It seems that a word chose me: FEAR!
So if fear chose me, I need to choose faith. I need to choose TRUST.
God is doing awesome things, leading in amazing ways in both my life, Shawn’s life, and our marriage. Frankly…it’s scary. Because I don’t know what lays beyond what’s right in front of me.
I don’t want to live a life that has me dragging around fear like a chest full of concrete. God doesn’t want me existing in fear, I think that’s why it keeps coming up. With each whisper of fear…He whisper’s, “Trust. You can do this. Just trust.”
So…the question I want to ask is how do we move away from fear?
I wish it was a simple 5 point answer, but I don’t think it is. Yes, the obvious answer is just trust God, but anyone who has experienced fear knows that is easier said than done.
Today I’d like to discuss how we move past fear. Scriptures, quotes, etc. that have ministered to you to be defined by courage rather than fear. I’d also like to take this time to pray for each other and the fears we are each experiencing. We are instructed to walk with each other, to carry each others burdens.
You guys are a great community to be a part of.
