Fear shows up in many ways with many different faces and some of those ways have been written about this week:
Kathy quotes Bishop Steven Charleston, one of my favorite daily devotional writers,
“No, fear and hate will never have the last word. Love will.”
Susanna writes about her planner and her fear of unpreparedness and surprise. We may have be long-lost sisters!
“Surprising God, I need you to help me utilize my gift of planning and preparedness in ways that are helpful.”
Pulpit Shenanigans is sharing her experience about feeling safe when the space, physical or vocational, feels familiar.
“I am afraid of things that become familiar, when I feel good about things, when I’m happy.”
Katherine considers and identifies with Mary’s fears,
“I know the terror of those moments and hours of feeling out of control, helpless when I didn’t know where a child was and the dark thoughts and the hope swirl around, bumping into one another, vying for power and waiting to see who will be victorious in the coming reality.”
What are you blogging about these days, dear sisters? Where is you fear and how does it show up in your daily life?
Prayers for God’s perfect love to envelop you and help you feel safe and beloved. Happy Easter!
