We have been doing a fear factor series at Real Life for a few weeks now. It has been so convicting to how I just live in fear. & I don’t deal with fear by facing it head on. I face it by freezing up; by deciding not to feel anything anymore. I go to sleep. I distract myself. Not anymore. I’ve been working on this for a couple of weeks & I really feel like it’s been fruitful.
I run to the Word instead of my bed. I get on my knees and pray instead of sitting down & watching trashy TV. I delight myself in the adventure at hand instead of tricking myself into believing that everything will be better in the future.
I only do this every so-often, but if you desire to pray for me, please pray that God gives me the strength & desire to keep this up. That my gaze will be on Him & nothing will distract me from it. That I will recognize that He rules over all fears I may have, & He has an amazing plan for my life that I can fully trust in.
