These past few weeks has been tough for me. Been spending my days alone since I am having a long vacation from work after sleepless nights finishing our financial reports.
I thought I was having a “me time” and keeping myself busy from doing brush lettering and painting. Then I started to distance myself to churchmates, colleagues and friends. But then later I found out that all along it was ‘fear‘ that was holding me back. The fear of the unknown. I know it was my greatest weakness. And maybe some of you, too. I always encounter that fear whenever there would be a sudden change in my life to happen. I know it wasn’t an accident that I played the song “Spirit of the Living God” in Spotify. It was the Lord who is reminding me that only Him can remove our fears.
So we can confidently say,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”
Hebrews 13:6 ESV
Then again, I remember my ‘one word‘. Each year, I am praying for a word that God would give me to help me grow in faith. This time is ‘Be Brave‘. I already thought that after passing the exam and working in the government is the ‘bravest‘ thing I ever did. But His plan always prevail. There is something more in His store. But now, I fully trust the Lord giving Him my pen to write the next chapters of my life. God already owns my heart. Fear has been defeated. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
I know some of you feels the same. If you are that person, comment ❤ and let me (us) pray for you.
In His grip of grace,
