When I was a young girl I was afraid of the monster in the closet that turned out to be a mouse eating my seed picture.
I was afraid of the bad dream that I had in fourth grade that aliens were kidnapping my friends from school.
I was afraid when a loud crack of thunder would leave our apartment vibrating and me running screaming down the hall to the safety of my mom’s arms.
As I’ve grown those childish fears have disappeared and been replaced by much more adult and scary fears.
I was afraid during the birth of my second child because of the heart-break I experienced during the birth of my first child.
I’ve been afraid that the world would mistreat the children that I love with all my heart.
But while I still have fears, I’ve learned to not let them paralyze me like the monsters, bad dreams and thunder did when I was a child.
I have learned that with my God no matter the situation or fear…He’s got my back. So what do I have to fear?
