In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Phobia, Shmobia.” Fear evolves over time, what is one fear you’ve conquered?
Today’s prompt somewhat interesting and more like a coincidence.I have been drafting something related to this title lately. That’s story for another post. One of the greatest fear I have ever had was the fear of the “unknown”. Not been sure of what tomorrow holds was so much of a dread that I would fret and fret over nothing, lets just say that now I am understanding better, and have come to terms with the fact that I may not know what tomorrow brings but I know who holds tomorrow-God and my faith and complete trust in Him is all that matters.
I’m still not over the fear of height-That will take a big miracle,because everytime I remember the great fall in high school,I still get that cold shiver and sensation in my spine.
The fear of failure? well,I am still a working progress! now I know that failure is a mechanism for success in itself ,it is neither a sin nor a taboo, So i have the permission to keep Failing…….Forward. I can only succeed at something if i try and keep trying and keep trying.(it can be frustrating sometimes).
I still feel my heart palpitating anytime I have to step on the microphone to sing/minister. That seems to me like a “good fear” to keep me in check andto remind me constantly that I am only a passage way of God’s divine expression,so I don’t get it twisted. :).
And no one takes this honour on himself but he receives it when called by God-Heb 5:4.
