Fear creates a hole in your heart. In your soul. AHA moment. What am I afraid of? I am afraid of the unknown. Of not being ‘successful.’ Of disappointing my parents. That I am doing the wrong thing. That on the outside, it looks like I do not have it all together. That I will spend my life alone. That I will wake up one day and have regrets. That there will be a time in my life where riding does not fit in.
This is extremely hard for me to admit. I have spent my life, I think mostly unknowingly, trying to convince everyone that I can do anything and everything on my own without help from anyone. Where does that come from? Not the Lord, I can tell you. I can not do it on my own and it is utterly apparent to me now. No one is immune to this. Fears are not conquered alone, no matter how hard you try.
What are you afraid of?
Thanks to Paul Overstreet – Topic on YouTube for the vid.
I am thankful for everything that He does with me, for me, and through me. I know that I am never alone because He is always there, helping me walk my path. I can conquer anything with Him.
Walk in love, dear readers.

Interesting that you say this. At church we heard a message similar to what you’re talking about. However, we talked about how shame can cause you to turn inward and workworkwork to prove yourself. The fact is, we can never prove ourselves to God or ourselves, or other people. Right?! We’ll never measure up. But when Christ lives in us, His power is more than enough.

Very true! Shame is a very powerful player! Many people also do not know the true definition of shame. Are you familiar with Brene Brown and her books or talks?
