I spent most of life in fear. My main fear was always that I would make the wrong choice, about anything. Each time I had to make a decision, I would ponder forever because I was afraid I would do the wrong thing. Ultimately I believe it was just fear of the future.
Being sick most of my life, I always feared I would never get better. And that has turned out to be true! I will never “get better” from my illnesses. They are chronic, forever. Recently, my fear turned into the fear of becoming disabled. But as I look back on all the obstacles I have overcome, I now know that whatever happens to me I will adapt and life will continue. I no longer fear the future. Hence this is why Proverbs 31:25 is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. (see yesterday’s post).
