Fear is something I’ve struggled with all my life. Timidity is the downside of the wonderful temperament I was born with. It helps to understand your quirks when you take the personality test. I have been enjoying reading The Magoos News ; Loren really understands the beauty of relationships. I encourage you to read her post entitled: How Well Do You Know Yourself/Your Spouse. She offers the personality test, too.
I’ve come a long way, but there’s work to be done when it comes to facing fear. You’ve got to keep going. And if you’re afraid, then you just have to do it afraid. That’s the story of my life!
My life scripture verse is Isaiah 41:10:
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you.
Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
I’m trusting that God is going to help me this coming Saturday morning just before dawn when I drive to San Diego. My daughter, Amy, is riding with me, but in two weeks I’m returning by myself. My suitcase is packed, my husband checked out my car and gave me some last minute advice, and I found some of my best praise CD’s to bring along to give me courage if I feel intimidated in big-city expressway driving.
How do you overcome fear? Have you faced any challenges lately that strengthened you? Encourage me; I’m listening!
