What are you afraid of???

Thanks to Mama's Losin' It Writers workshop here is my writing challenge for today

What       am
I       Afraid
Of        ???

Maybe a better question is what aren't I afraid of?

I'm afraid of soooo many things,

Calling people on the telephone
All types of adventure sport
(even our back yard water slide!!!)
Challenging people when I know I should
Sharing my faith in Jesus when given perfect oppurtunities
When the kids are sick
When hubby is sick
When I'm sick
When I have to drive, especially right hand turns and traffic lights
trying and failing


I'm not afraid of:

public speaking
leading singing in front of 700+ kids
running kids aerobics
leading worship

One of the speakers I heard at my conference said you should run towards your fears,
tackle them head on he said, that's the only way to conquer them.

And though I don't see bungy jumping in my future, I think he really has a point!  When my fears are pulling me back I need to face them, conquer them and move on from them.

If we can do this, we can do anything!

Philippians 4:13
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.


  1. THAT'S your backyard waterslide???
    That's awesome!

    PS I think that speakers is right... but I'm with you on the bungy jumping!

  2. The YOUTH group loved the water slide, though after a few runs they did find a few rocks lol! My husband loves to try something bigger each year, we used to just slide down the grass reserve this is much faster, and I think he is still saving for the water pump to make it even better tee hee!
