I have had a fear of writing…afraid I won’t make it, a few of not knowing what to write, a fear that people won’t like how I write. A fear that God isn’t really calling me to write. That is why I put off writing. That is why I procrastinate it…because I’m not sure and fearful.
But the last few days after feeling this call again so much about writing and facing my fears has came to me, I know I must face my fears because I know God has called me to write, I must be obedient. I want that!
Facing our fears isn’t easy. It requires vulnerability and humility. Even if we approach our fears like Jacob did, sometimes what we fear the most does happen—and maybe worse. One thing remains the same regardless of what happens when we face our fears: God. Who God is never changes. What God can do will never change. Hold that in the face of your fear and face it. –Wendy Pope
Lord, help me face my fears. Help me to stand strong and do what you call me to do. I want to be obedient to you and answer the call you have on my life. I’m grateful that no matter what comes my way you never change! Help me to store your word in my heart! Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.-John 14:27
