Letting Who I Know Overwhelm My Circumstances

I would not consider myself squeamish. I don't even know that I have any particular phobias. I can be cautious at times, but I don't get freaked out by spiders or heights or anything like that. In fact, for a number of years I took horseback riding lessons. A series of events and temperament ended up with me taking lessons on one of the biggest horses in the stable. While I was more hesitant at jumps after a fall, I always go back on and set my sites on higher jumps. So, height was not the issue one day at camp.

I stood on the tall block willing myself to relax. I told myself, "Close your eyes. Just lean back. They will catch you." But I couldn't bring myself to do it.

I'm posting today at the Internet Cafe. Click here to finish reading this post.

Amy, thanks again for your post and for you comment. I'm a new blogger (as you probably saw!) so having you come by and drop a note was a sweet hug from the Lord! Faith is hard but like you, I'm committed to walking it out. He is faithful. I know if I do my part, He'll do the rest. I'll keep you and your work here in prayer. We share a similar struggle with depression - here's to fighting the battle in the One who has already won the war for us. Blessings to you, Aurora
