Fear

"If you are hoping to use journaling as a spiritual practice leading you into an authentic engagement with God, you (and I) will need to choose to go deeper than a diary of events. This is not automatic for any of us; it is a choice. And we will not be able to make this deeper journey into our writing and ourselves without facing the specter of our own fears. This is true whether it is fear of failure, fear of success, fear of doubt, or fear of trusting the deeper truth in our lives ...

Such courage to face our fears will not come to us because we are brave, but because we know we are loved ...

Only by allowing God's love to meet us at the point of our greatest fear will we move from being people of fear to people of faith."

"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear ..." - 1 John 4:18.

Welcome to the table, friend!

This is where we gather and hang out. I'd love for you to pull up a chair and jump right into the conversation. Or simply say 'hello.'

l'll be dropping in to visit you sometime soon ...

Linda
