Tomorrow I am turning 50.
I have to say that I am actually excited about this new chapter.
I have heard people talk about a mid-life crisis. I have not experienced that, but what I have experienced is what I like to call a “mid-life awakening.” Over the past few months, God has shown me some specific things about myself . . . some wonderful and some, well, not so much. Of course, as always, He does this with love.
One of the biggest things He has helped me see is that I have let fear rule my life.
I have a dear friend who once lovingly told me “to get out of my own way.” That has stuck with me since he first told me that. I realize now, along with what God has been showing me, that I have definitely let fear be my wall – stopping me from even trying to do some things.
I have been my own stumbling block.
So, as I say goodbye to my forties, I am waving hello to a life without fear.
My prayer is this: “Lord, help me daily to let my faith be bigger than my fear. Help me scale the walls before me. Amen.”
