Love is What we are Born With. Fear is What we Learned Here

I can't really say I have a time where I feel most afraid. Sure Insects freak me out and the occasional storm may have me quoting some 2 Timothy, "God has not given me the spirit of fear. Heck, when I watch my Daddy die on the living room floor at 17, it wasn't the best. But it was more if I can't believe this is how it's gonna go down, than fear. My Daddy's the blessed one who not gets to spend eternity in no plan and lots of joy. Yeah, sooner than we would all have liked. I could even say that before my back surgery I was a tad freaked out that I would have a nightmare durning surgery and not be able to wake up from it because all the medicine they would have me on. Or the time I was at the fair as a child and a man with a gun came in one of the food courts and we were all ushered under tables while he popped a few rounds. I  have always and will continue to refuse to be a victim in life.  Life really is how yo react to the situations you are given. I chose to not give the negative in a life a chance to thrive. I read a great article this morning from Relevant Magazine entitled "5 lies every twenty something needs to stop believing. The part that I loved the most was the quote I'll leave you with today- "Failure is not a period, it's a coma. And only if you stop trying will you really fail."



  1. I've been remembering that verse a lot lately with all the unemployment drama. I just want it to be over, but nothing happens that God doesn't first allow.

  2. I really like the title of this post. You have a great voice for writing!
