What Scares You?

Closeup portrait of cute young business woman What would it look like if every believer in Christ asked God to show them what it looks like for them to be more intimate with Him?

I believe the word intimacy scares many people. There is such rawness and vulnerability around this emotion. And fear, the unhealthy type, is a response to a supposed punishment. But, as a believer in Christ, He has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and of a sound mind. Power, love and a sound mind are our inheritance in Christ and, yes, even our identity in Him!

Thanking him for revealing it and asking him boldly to remove it. Even if the cost is temporary emotional upheaval. The outcome is more than I can ever hope or imagine!

Shalom!
