and has now come when the true worshipers will worship
the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the
kind of worshipers the Father seeks." - John 4:23
My Heavenly Daddy is healing
me from the inside out.
Transparency is Real.
Many times painful.
Daddy let me be secure in You only!

HOW DOES FEAR DEFINE YOU?
Trembling and bewildered, the women went out and fled from the tomb. They said nothing to anyone, because they were afraid. Mark 16:8
God knows we are weak and that our courage is limited. He knows that fear is part of our human condition.
Slowly, I am learning that He, above all does NOT shame me for being afraid. He can still use me, sweaty palms, upset stomach and everything to get His message out and help others. The Scripture above does eventually go on to say that courage was granted the women. They were able to speak.
As I continue to strengthen in areas of my life that have been very painful, fear tries its best to continue to paralyze me. I still stumble. Fear can be like a frightening storm.
Tornadoes have always fascinated me. Never been in one. The power, the destruction, the uncertainty. In tornado alley, an approaching tornado sounds a loud alarm, warning you to move to safety.
What do you do in the face of fear? What does your sounding alarm do for you? How does fear define you?
Does fear immobilize you and force you to spiral down like a tornado or shoot you up moving you to a higher and better place where eventually fear will dissipate into love?
