I learned to be fearful when . . .
I was not allowed to speak (children meant to be seen and not heard)
I was not allowed an opinion (parents, teachers, church leaders need always be right)
Inferior (because my best friend was an A student . . . me, a "B")
I met evil in people (it's all around us)
Injustice (Life on earth is NOT FAIR)
Freedom/dignities denied (again, it's all around us)
I learned to be fearless when . . .
I met Jesus
He wants me "to speak" . . . He made my vocal cords
He gave me "an opinion" . . . He designed my brain
Equality in Him . . . HE is The Judge and Jury
I find the way in Him . . . He is the Path
Light in Him . . . NO DARKNESS
Fairness in Him . . . come to Me, ALL of you
Compassion in Him . . . Care for ALL
Love in Him . . .
In the world, I fear
In Jesus, I fear not (less)
In reality, I fear
Tucked in His Spirit, is where I choose to reside.
Life in His Spirit has become a reality for me. Life outside His Spirit, He did not intend me to be. (I always tell God, Jesus and Spirit . . . if YOU are not going, neither am I!)
