In less than a week, my summer officially starts! A couple months back I decided I wanted this summer to be different, I wanted to do more, try more, enjoy more.
Some of the things on my list:
-making new friends
(and working, obviously, but that happens every summer haha)
But as I get closer to going home, I realize, this summer, more than anything, I want to learn to live without fear. For so long, I've let fear and anxiety bind my chest, keeping me from breathing, keeping me from truly living. The older I get, the faster time goes. My life is a gift and I don't want to waste it. Besides, if my God is greater and stronger than anything else, why I am letting Fear dictate my life??
And so, another list for this summer. To give up:
-fear of losing someone
-fear of being unloveable
-fear of guys
-fear of insincerity
-fear of failure, of never being good enough
-fear of the future
I know these fears won't simply disappear, but I'm ready - to live under God's rule, instead of the enemies.
"With an ember of hope
And a desire to breathe,
I want to learn to live,
I need You to show me how."
