On the discussion of fear — Do you fear the future?
Growing up in the isolation of an abusive home, I didn’t like tomorrows very much. What did tomorrow hold that looked different than what I had?
There was no hope in my yesterday, there was no hope in the day, and there certainly was no hope in tomorrow. How do I get that message gone from my being? I struggle with that.
God tells me to trust Him. That he goes before me and is behind me. I know this in my mind but the history my soul carries fights the message that tomorrow will be okay. That tomorrow holds good things for me.
I don’t like fear and I know God doesn’t want me to live in fear, but sometimes I struggle.
Do you fear the future?
