Day 4: Your biggest fear as a single personSometimes I wish I'm as brave inside as the mask I put on for the world. Sadly, I'm not.
I've got fears. Fear for my loved ones, fear of the unknown, fear of not being able to accomplish anything.
Mostly, as a single person, I fear that I might get stuck. Don't get me wrong. I love my life (if I didn't I would have made a way to change it). It's just that I'm one of those little girls who dreamed of growing into the Proverbs wife and becoming a loving mother.

What if the path prepared for me is not what I've always envisioned for myself?
What if I couldn't hold on much longer?
I know my time will come and I have learned to wait patiently and faithfully for God's timing, but there are just days when I...well, behave like a normal human being. I worry. I get discouraged. I get scared.

Because courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is doing it afraid.
