Forget what is behind and strive towards what's ahead
Courage comes when our faith is stronger than our fear
I've come to realize that I've been living infear and that the end product is what others will think of me if this or that happens when I am out in public. The worst has happened on a couple of occasions and I'm still alive, but I've allowed those occasions to fertilize my fear. I lost faith in myself and in the fact that I am one of God's people no matter if I have an IBS attack while I'm out shopping and everyone knows. I need to remind myself that in one hundred years everyone who saw what happened will be just as dead as I will be and that my staying home hiding isn't affecting any of them... just me...
On the positive side, I am trying to move forward slowly. I spend an hour with a neighbor walking in a park every Sunday morning. What better way to give praise to God than to enjoy his creations...
I vow to continue to make the small steps. It doesn't matter how long it takes to get there just the fact that you got there
