Over the last few weeks I’ve really realised that I am a fearful person. Fear has creeped in and is making itself at home in my life. I need to learn to tell my fear that my God is bigger.
Recently I had to face one of my biggest fears. I didn’t want to & it would of been so much easier without this but I needed to face it.
I had to have a procedure in hospital. Hospitals are scary for me, more like terrifying! The fact that that experience is all over still doesn’t seem real to me. Maybe you are thinking ‘Hannah, this really is a bit dramatic for something that isn’t a big deal.” Well, to me this is a big deal because inside I was a mess when I had to deal with this fear. On the outside all was calm but really it wasn’t like that. I basically didn’t really take notice of much going on around me from the moment I was told I had to face this fear.
Over the years I had built up this fear and made it a mountain in my life. Then the time came that this mountain needed to be broken but I didn’t exactly want to give this mountain over to God. I didn’t actually want to deal with or process this mountain at all!
But the thing was it had to be done whether or not I liked it. So slowly God started working in my heart and breaking down these fear barriers and working with this specific fear and before I knew it I had face the fear! He did it all, He knew I couldn’t face it alone!
This fear was conquered with faith.
God always shows up even when we are convinced we don’t need to deal with something. He turned this fear mountain into a faith mountain.
God is bigger than any mountain in our lives.
