of not being good enough
of being hurt again, again, again
of trusting and being let down
of the scab being ripped off and bleeding forever
Wearing it to cover the secrets
Using it to avoid, to justify, to protect
Did Jesus not fear the Crucifixion?
How could he not – he was a man.
He pushed past his fear to his love for all people and his desire to do his Father’s will above all else, including self-preservation.
How do I push past the fear?
