As one that has a medical issue my main fear is my asthma getting worse than it already is. I have also been having more medical issues especially within the last year with my asthma, my allergies, and more constant migraines during times that aren’t asthma related. Even though I battle daily it seems with these medical issues I do try to keep my mind on the bigger picture and remember that with this I can prove to be a testament for God’s glory. I know that fear in a healthy way is a positive thing and that it can bring us closer to God.
Although never easy I pray to God every day for me to let go of the unhealthy fears that might be in my life. There are times I also fear about not being able to have children and be a parent although I don’t talk about that one as much I have always pictured myself as a mother as well as other things. Sometimes I fear about never being able to complete all the various writing projects I have in my mind especially things that are longer that I haven’t been able to work on in a long time. Until the writing challenges other than my blog series I haven’t been able to work on longer pieces such as short stories and novels which I always had the ability to work on before being tuned only to the art of poetry.
I sometimes also fear about not being able to minister well to others. I wonder if I am truly a great example to the others around me and always pray for God to guide me. Until more recently I didn’t really look into how my gifts I do have that of being there for people and my writing as ways to ministering to others around me.
