be afraid of (someone or something) as likely to be dangerous, painful, or threatening
I am afraid.
I'm afraid to close my eyes at night.
I'm afraid of the dark.
I am afraid to show my emotions.
I am afraid to be myself.
And I am afraid of trusting somebody.
Why am I afraid of trust? Because...... I have trusted people before, and have been hurt.
But, I want to trust God! It is hard to think that there is a God out there that loves me so much, that He only wants the best for me! That He would never hurt me or abandon me, but only wants to see me follow Him, and finish this race to say "Well done!".
I want to trust Him so much that I would follow Him through the Ocean's deep if it would just lead me closer to Him. How, after all He has done for us, could we not just trust Him? He wants us just to trust Him!
I want Him to lead me through the Ocean, if it would just cause me to break down these walls of fear, and trust Him. So that my faith will be made stronger. Because I will never be made stronger without Him! Only Jesus can lead me deeper than my feet would ever lead me!
Only Jesus can help me make the jump that will take me from where I am, to where I want to be. And that is closer to Him.
I want to let go, and say:
"Jesus, have me!
Whatever it is that you can do to make me, to make me so my trust is without borders. Where my faith is stronger than any deep waters that may rise!"
Don't live stuck on that same page, the same place that is holding you down....but turn the page, and just trust God that He will lead you :)
The LORD is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?- Psalm 118:6
Jesus, I am Yours
You are mine,
I love You.........
Spirit, lead me!
