“She is clothed with strength and dignity; and she laughs without fear of the future.” Proverbs 31:25 (NLT)
Earlier this year God gave me the word FEARLESS. I tend to be a worrier and God wanted me release that to him and trust Him fully. Little did I know, God was going stretch my fearlessness even more. I do not like heights. I do not like going fast. If I do not feel like I am in control, I physically began to shake in fear. So when our team leads told us we were going zip-lining over a waterfall, I immediately said “Nope! I’ll just play in the water.” But then my group leader, Julie said something to me. She said that when she goes on trips like this she gets herself to try everything. She pushes herself to do things she wouldn’t normally do because what if she never gets that chance again. God started pulling on my heart again. I told them I would think about it. Then last night happened. We had a birthday fiesta followed by an amazing night of worship. There was one point where I felt like I was literally dancing with my Father. I had this image of me dressed up like a princess just waltzing around heaven with God. I don’t think I have ever felt that close to Him.
When I got up the next day, I knew I needed to be brave and that He would be holding my hand so I could face my fear. It was amazing!! I can not put into words what I felt as we came over the waterfall. I was terrified, but I was soaring with my Father. I’m so glad Julie said something. I’m so glad that God is making me fearless. I want to experience everything with Him!!
