If I wasn’t so afraid, things would be better.
If I wasn’t so afraid, I wouldn’t spend each day thinking about all of the terrible things that go on in this world. I wouldn’t spend every single day scared and letting fear hold me back from just being happy and living my life. I know that I need to let God take control. Well. He already has control, always has. But I need to let myself rest in knowing that fact. I need to find peace in knowing that God has me in the palm of His hand.
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5
This verse is one that I have been holding very close lately. There are so many things in this world that we don’t understand. That we are unable to understand. It’s frustrating. It’s scary. It’s hard to live in a world that you don’t understand. A world that you don’t necessarily trust. There are so many terrible things that happen. So many terrible people. So many things to be scared of. To be paranoid about.
Fear has held me back so much lately. It’s probably the most frustrating thing that I’ve dealt with in a while. I need to trust God with my whole heart. Not focus on what I know or what I think I know, but have faith in Him and that He knows what He’s doing.
