Fear Factor

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.
