Today's Transparent Topic: Being paralyzed with fear
Seconds passed, but it felt much longer, before I heard the words, "Dana, Dana...It's me, John." My brain was trying to process this information as I was flooded with emotions. I was shaking from head to toe and could still barely speak or move. John and forgotten something and had come back into the house without me hearing him. Man, just thinking about that moment makes my insides quiver again.
So, in life, do you ever let fear control your decisions? Fear of failure? Fear of looking stupid? Fear of what may/may not happen? What if you missed out on the most amazing opportunity simply because you let fear paralyze your actions?
If we could live our lives in retrospect we'd realize how many times fear got us absolutely nowhere. You've heard it said before, "the only thing to fear is fear itself." So true!
If you're allowing fear to paralyze you right now, I'd love to pray for you. Hand over that fear to God, friends, and allow him to work out those details for you. Leave me a comment or send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
