A few weeks ago I stood in awe of how one prayer seemed to transform my being from an insecure shell of a woman into a confident tigress!
…A bit Dramatic I know, but I found myself making plans to go jet skiing next month and if God says the same I will!!!
For years I had been afraid of heights, spiders, and things that goes bump in the night. Yet, a few weeks ago, it occurred to me that I hadn’t always been afraid of them.
I couldn’t understand why I started being so fearful. I mean when I was a kid, I used to catch spiders and climb trees! I had never been bitten by a poisonous spider…well when I was pregnant with Kayla I was bitten by something, but it was never identified.
I still haven’t put my finger on it, but I do know now that it is not the way I was meant to live. I mean I just cracked out of my self-imposed shell of introversion recently so things really feel new to me.
I guess I can understand why Jesus said for us to be child-like.
Children are fearless because they are naturally trusting. Children believe that the one who created them will never hurt intentionally hurt them. For whatever reason over time, I failed to recognize for too long the same is true of my Heavenly Father’s care for me.
Whatever the case, I’ve come to realize that I’m alive for a reason and I can’t fully embrace what I’m called to do if I’m too fearful to step out of my comfort zone. So I’ve decided to just be fearless!
