Today Christian overcame his fear of the dreaded Journey to Atlantis ride at Seaworld. As you watch, listen to the fear in his groans while we are rising to the top of the roller coaster, and then watch the joy on his face after we reach the bottom. Isn’t life just like that? We are afraid of the unknown, only to discover that with God’s help and patient prodding (this was a 2-year fear for Christian to overcome), when we reach the bottom we discover there was nothing to fear at all.
God, I love you for that. Help me to overcome my fears. I need you now. JG
