Being scared

Being scared

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. What can mere mortals do to me?
(Psalm 56:3-4; NIV).

“I tell you, my friends, do not be afraid of those who kill the body and after that can do no more” (Luke 12:5; NIV).

I just found out today
That being scared of someone
Isn’t normal –
I never knew that before!

Why didn’t anyone tell me?

It was certainly normal for me –
At home when I was young,
Then, as I grew up,
With anyone
Who spoke aggressively
To me.

But now, at last, I’m learning,
Slowly and painfully,
To get some boundaries in place
With those who scare me.

Thank you for all your help
During this lifelong healing process.

In Jesus’ holy name,
