When You're Really, Really Ridiculously Good At Fearing

I don't mean to brag but I'm like really, really good at fearing. Like expert level. Fear olympian, here! I fear things LIKE IT'S MY JOB.  My entire, I LITERALLY MEAN ENTIRE, life has been stamped with battling fear.

When You've Lost

This feeling I felt when I lost my child, and also the glimpse of fear this mother felt, makes me wonder what God must have felt when he gave his only son to die on a cross and take the sins of the world to save us and bring us to Him.

I can't imagine. I can't shake that feeling.

The most perfect human, Jesus, not deserving death, but willing to take that on to save this broken world. How undeserving am I that God would give up his child?
