I was brave last night! I decided to weigh myself. I’m not sure what I weigh this morning, but last night I weighed myself and found out that I’ve lost 3 pounds since seeing the diabetic doctor. That’s okay I guess, but it’s not good enough to be at my goal. I guess, though, you have to go slow and steady or you’re more prone to gaining it all back (at least that’s what I’m told anyway).
So I was brave in that regard. Now can I convince myself to start listening to my audio therapy again and overcome my fear of elevators? I hope so! I feel terrible because in my heart and mind I know there is no reason to be afraid of them, and yet I can never force myself into one.
I was also brave the other day when we accidentally jammed the master bedroom door shut instead of just latching it shut. I tried to open it at first and it wouldn’t budge. I then yanked hard and pulled the door open. At last I was free!
So bravery is slowly making its way into my life, but I don’t know how long it will take before I can overcome most of my fears. I say most because I know we can never overcome ALL our fears!
Jesus will guide me through the darkness and into the light. I know He will do the same for you. We only need to ask and He’ll be right there to help us. Now, can I actually trust Jesus? Can you?
