I’m guessing this question isn’t hard for you to answer.
In fact, I’m guessing that, in thinking about it, a whole kennel of miscellaneous fears started barking at you if you entertained the thought for even a minute.
ALL of us are afraid of something, since there are so many opportunities to cower and shake and obsess and descend into darkness these days—on a global, regional and personal scale.
But consider this: maybe whatever is currently scaring you can point the way to a life of adventure.
So glad you asked…because that question, as always, reminds me of a story:
One year our church was sponsoring a women’s retreat titled Trusting God in the Ups and Downs of Life. I was in charge of finding a drama and designing a set to enhance the theme.
I ultimately decided on a great sketch titled No More Womb, where the two main characters are unborn twins, hanging out in utero, discussing all that they look forward to and all that frightens them about entering the outside world.
Corralling actors was easy; designing the set, however, was a challenge since, let’s be honest, the requirements for this one were fairly weird.
