Our Deepest Fear


Imagine a world where fear didn't limit you? 

Because

Fear does limit us, often in small seemingly negligible ways.
Only, it shows up big later on down the road, when we try
stretching for faith and are left hopelessly flailing in its wake. 
It stops us in our tracks, leaves a cold sweat slick to our sides.
Its insidious grip - so stifling, crushing and oppressive. Hot!
Our deepest fear ringing loud in our ears, us stranding alone.
Not enough, too loud, too quiet, too plain, really - too much!
Sucking oxygen from the soul, surreptitiously invading and 
fanning the flames of dread, snuffing the light within. Dead!

But

What if we truly did believe, that we were powerful. Seriously!
Alive for purpose and significance, lovely beyond description.
Possessors of boundless aptitude, capacity or ability, no really!
A city on a hill that cannot be hidden, a beacon in the darkness.
We could upend fear, hold faith near.

That we - humankind, might be living breathing vessels, carriers of a divine plan.
Powerful, not because of our frail humanity or its limited and shortsighted altruism. 
But because of an omnipotent and infinitely greater power bequeathing upon us a 
magnanimous legacy of extraordinary proportions. So great in its magnificence, 
so exceedingly exceptional that it seems incomprehensible, it truly defies belief!

How would that change you?

Thoughts of being part of a divine plan humbles me. Yet we are...and too often forget how powerful God is and longs for us to be.
