I heard a song on the radio one day and it really stuck with me. The song is Fear Is a Liar by Zach Williams. I have since downloaded his albums and love his music.
I don’t think I am alone when I say I have struggled with fear most of my life. I struggled with anxiety for a good part of my life too. However, I have really come full circle in the battle to overcome fear. The only reason is being grounded in my faith in Jesus Christ. In the song he says “fear he is a liar, he will rob your rest and steal your happiness“. That is what fear does to us!
I have wanted to barrel race my entire life since I was probably 9 years old. I would spend hours in the tall grass across from my house and run around imaginary barrels on an 18 year Appaloosa named Rojo. It taking almost 40 years to live a dream and I could let fear keep me from doing it, but I have entrusted to God all things that I desire to do. I admit that my mind still ponders the what ifs but I quickly give those moments to God and trust Him with my life. After all, life on earth is temporary but life with Him is eternal and forever.
Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand”.
Give your fears to God today and move forward and shine for Him.
