When I Run from My Fears — 8 Comments

  1. Great post, Ruth. One of my fears that makes me run toward Christ is my fear of failure. I can easily be distracted by everything that could go wrong, especially when I attempt to control the situation. But I remember I can do all things through Christ and His time is not the same as my time. It helps me to remember to trust His will and not mine.

    • Oh, absolutely! You are so right.

      I was just talking to a friend about this today. I face fear of failure all the time when I write. One thing that helps me get past it is to remember that when I’m faithful, it doesn’t matter if the results aren’t a home run every time. Faithfulness to Christ and his calling is success.

  2. This is excellent! I have to keep at the front of my mind who I would be, what I would look like if it weren’t for Christ, like a nazgul (only kinda sorry for the LOTR reference). It frightens me, but it drives me. Thanks for the reminder and the great post, Ruth!
