Fear Not—Kevin Deming

Myth: Godly people don't struggle with fear.
Truth: Everyone struggles with fear.
You’re not scared of the dark. You’re scared of what’s in it.
You’re not afraid of heights. You’re afraid of falling.
You’re not afraid of the people around you. You’re just afraid of rejection.
You’re not afraid to love. You’re just afraid of not being loved back.
You’re not afraid to let go. You’re just afraid to accept the reality that someone you love is gone.
You’re not afraid to try again. You’re just afraid of getting hurt for the same reason.
Pray this prayer: God, help my desires to be in line with your desires. Help me trust in your ways, give up my idea of what life should be like, and let you be God of my life.
