Afraid To Tell {Day 2:Afraid}

I have always loved hearing a story and reading a story but telling one has always given me anxiety. If I tell my story someone will make fun of me, stop talking to me, or feel differently about me. I have typed and deleted so many beginnings because I was afraid. How do you overcome fear?

I hung on to God's truth. The amount of times His Word says, "Do not fear," should make us stop and take note! It took me years and years to be able to begin telling my story. As I let the words flow onto paper or the screen I felt a sense of weight lifting from me.

God gave me the desire to write. I have tried writing stories that had nothing to do with my life but it never worked. I knew He wanted me to share my story but I was afraid to tell.

Today, I will overcome being afraid to tell.
