Fears, Tears and Freedom
Fear is a huge obstacle to overcome. Fear comes in many different shapes and forms. It can be the fear of I’m not enough. I’m a failure. There’s nothing good in me. I never do anything right. I don’t want to be alone. I don’t want to be abused. I’m not good enough and so much more.
When we finally get to the point where we can identify our fears and their roots, it can be a difficult process. The fears we have many times cause us to self-protect with food. Then food becomes what we run to instead of God.
When we finally see that God is the only one who can protect us and take away our fears, we will cry. The tears, though, will wash away our fears and the wrong things we did to try to get fear to go away. It will take some tears to wash our souls from the overwhelming fears we have finally decided to hand to God. But, oh the freedom that comes when we do that!
