saying goodbye to fear


Today I watched my fears fly away.I wrote them down on scraps of paper, tied them to balloons, lifted my hands and gave them to Jesus. As they fluttered from my fingertips, I watched as those fears soared higher and higher til I could see them no longer. I released them from the tight hold they had on my heart and handed them over to Jesus. It’s amazing how freeing it is to let Jesus take away your fears. It used to feel like those things would swallow me up and eat me whole. Though writing them on a piece of paper and tying them to a balloon string doesn’t automatically take them permanently away, Jesus can. And He will. If you ask Him. Today my steps feel softer, my heart feels stronger, and my shoulders feel lighter. Because today, I watched my fears fly fly fly away..
