I am afraid, of not being successful and ending up average. I am scared that my mother will never say ‘I am proud of you.’ I am scared that everyone who said I couldn’t go far was right. I am scared that I will walk in the light and then one day I will fall and that’s when God will call me and I will miss heaven. I am scared, I feel like I could disappear and the world wouldn’t notice my absence and those who would, won’t miss me. I am scared that I haven’t lived life at all and the bus is here so I have to go, having experienced nothing.
I am however well aware that fear cannot exist with faith. I have these moments every time something goes wrong but the Bible is always quick to remind me that everything is working for the good of those who love the Lord.
If you have faced this kind of fear, maybe lost your job, a loved one or just feeling left behind here is a few verses to remind you that your father is a king and He’s got your back.
What does the word say about me?
