So many times we are scared to let go. We are scared to love. We are scared to learn. We are scared to be who God has made us to be. We are crippled by the fears that bind us. We are saddened when we are face to face with a destiny lost, a future that we once longed for, and a time when we actually knew who we were. We find ourselves at the end of a tunnel, and we have no clue how we got there. We let fear control us, and now we so desperately need faith to step into our life. It seems like the shadows come caving in on us when we least expect it. We are surprised by reality. We are reminded of our past.
We Are Scared
