I am not scared

I love my age - I am no longer scared about much.  I used to be scared of everything...

I have also become strangely attracted to things that seem impossible.  I like trying to see if I can figure them out, it's kind of like getting inside somewhere you are not supposed to go.  My curiosity has never been stronger.

Age brings a kind of confidence normally, I'm not so sure confidence is what I feel now, instead it's more like I finally truly, completely trust God.  And I rest in that.  Of course I take back the reigns and try to do it myself once in a while, but He's patient with me and I think He enjoys strength instead of cowardice.  Especially if it can remain non-arrogant. 

In some respect being scared served me well in the past - it protected me from things, but, I wonder how many opportunities I missed due to contentment to remain right where I was in my safe little place?  Sad.

Anyway, I'm writing this to encourage you to try new things - step out and follow Him confidently and see what He has for you.  Enjoy your age no matter what it is and thank Him for every moment He gives you.

Hebrews 13:6    'So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear"....
