Fear not (from 12/2010)
So many times I am afraid to speak, I feel the familiar knot in my throat which holds all my passion and all my words inside of me. It is the knot of fear. I desire to trust you, Oh Lord, to truly believe and live under the words you say to me: "Fear not, for I am with you." To know, beyond any doubt, that you have called me by name, that I am yours. I long to trust these feelings, these feelings that you are always there no matter what, that I am precious to you and that you love me. To trust that if I place myself in your hands, you will be there to catch me, that your love will support me and hold me and comfort me. Your are my Lord, my God, my Savior...and that should be enough.
