Fear keeps rearing its ugly head, and I think the latest struggle is in wrestling with this:
The more you have, the more you have to lose.
I’m not just speaking in terms of money/possessions, although those things are included. I’m speaking in terms of relationships and letting people close…
… but even now, God is giving me a healing response. Changing one word in our perspective can change everything. You can turn fear into freedom, by way of love, and that statement above can become:
The more you have, the more you have to give.
When we stop worrying so much about what we have to gain or lose, start considering what’s already been perfectly given unto us from God, and the way He wants to bless others through us, we make the greatest exchanges of all– selfish for selfless, control for trust, pain for strength, and fear for freedom… the freedom to love.
