I never spread my wings to fly. (Although I've sang, "Broken Wing" numerous times)
We were flood victims this past year and through that time of uncertainty, I gained courage. I have been through some difficult things in my life, but I have never needed things. When everything was stripped away, I learned that God is my provider. The passage from Matthew 6 that I have hidden in my heart was finally real to me:
31So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
I was driving home from work one day in August and realized that my prayer since CHILDHOOD, "Lord, take away this fear that holds me down and rules my life," was being answered.
I am beginning ACT I of my journey. I am at the start of a new life, driven by courage.
For the 1st time in 27 years, I feel like I can fly.
Thank you for supporting me as I learn to soar.
