Today was my least favorite day of the semester: Syllabus Day because it means I'm stressed. Yesterday was my favorite day of the semester: Spring Retreat. Of course, why not save the best day for the worst day and blog about them in reverse?
Yesterday we did a lot of introspective stuff and spend a lot of time talking about being transparent and revealing ourselves to each other.
One question we had to answer: What keeps you from sharing?
The most common responses was fear. Fear of rejection. Fear of failure. Fear of humiliation. Fear of vulnerability. And on and on. Fear.
Do we run our lives based off of fear? Why do let fear control us when the only One whose opinion matters has already made up His mind? I've blogged about this before. Just once or twice. :-)
God loves you. Never forget that!
I love you, too,
