Fear Has Big Eyes

​Fear has big eyes.  It sees everything as a threat and so controls our thoughts and destroys our hopes. 

In this sense it becomes an idol.  

We invest it with meaning above everything else – including the Love that God has for us and what He gives us.  It directs our thoughts, makes our decisions and drives our actions.

It may slow us down but it is not a holy stillness or silence that allows for an encounter with God and an experience of His grace. 

Rather, it paralyzes us; prevents us from reaching out to the One who seeks for us at every moment. Instead of being lifted up by Love we remain earthbound; unable to break free of the moorings of our fears. 

Our vision becomes warped and we are prevented from seeing His Glorious Face.  

We are everything to Him and yet we minimize the King of the Universe.

I’m a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a writer, a friend. I cook, clean, work, teach, study, live, love and laugh, but when it’s all said and done, I still feel empty. I want what I can’t have, I’ve wanted it for a long time but it was taken. I thought to myself, the desire for it should go away now that I’ve prayed…I’ve cried, begged, pleaded and even pretended it wasn’t there; I cry out to God and beg Him to please just take this from me, do something to strip me of the earthly desires, of the evil in my heart and nothing happens…it’s still there and some days it’s hard to swallow and suck down the tears inside, it hurts so much and in one brief moment, it could all be gone so quickly! He gives me words to bless others with and release my own thoughts.
