At the end of 2013, when I began thinking about the concept of "One Word" for 2014 - I never imagined that Fearless would be revealed to me. But there it was - over and over. Fearless. And that is the word I adopted for the past year.
The word God revealed to me and has used it to
show me so much about myself and my fears.
How fear is its own for of
doubt and disbelief. That the key to being truly fearless is trust. Trusting Him and His plans for me. Being willing to step out in obedience despite my own fears and concerns.
How I have allowed my fears to rule me and guide my life rather than following His plans for me.
And constantly reminding
me: "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not
be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with
you wherever you go." (Joshua 1:9)
Am I completely fearless now? Am I free from worry? No... it still creeps in. More often than I would really like to admit. But it's progress in the right direction.
