Fear Cannot Win
Have you ever been scared? Really scared?
I remember growing up and having intense bouts of fear. One of those fears was the belief I was going to be left behind in the Rapture (the Biblical kind).
The fear crept in whenever I would return home and find the house empty. Mom, dad, sister, brother… Nowhere to be found.
What was to be found was fear. Fear I wasn’t good enough. That I’d done something unforgivable. Or that I wasn’t a true believer.
Except the fear was unfounded. I hadn’t been left behind during the Rapture. The Rapture never happened and my family was just out and about on their daily business.
You ever have fear like that? It’s petrifying.
What Fear Does
For me, fear paralyzed me. It sent my mind racing and trying to figure out WHY I was left behind.
