I really enjoy sharing my wife’s work over at Our Bit of Chaos. She has written a really helpful and hopeful article on living with fear and anxiety and not to operate out of the place.
Fear is a mighty force. It can dictate so many of our thoughts, words and actions. We are so for self preservation that we don’t allow ourselves to be vulnerable or reveal our real selves to others. It whispers in our ear, convincing us that our deepest, darkest nightmares will come true and that we are alone in our wanderings on this earth. That is exactly the opposite of how God desires us to operate. He desires us to have vulnerable, open communication with Him and with those He’s put in our lives to walk this road with us.
You can check out her whole post below and also read a lot of the other stuff she has written. She is really great!
