As I look before of the dischevelment of events, good and bad, that have happened, I get this sense of overwhelment. God really has done so much, whether I make sense of it all or not. What were the best memories, what happened during the holiday break? Going to my first anime convention, attending one of my first concerts, meeting four wonderful Christian Fantasy authors and also the women who really knows how to write an awesome Vampire series and reading some amazing books that have helped to escape and discern the fragments of life and find meaning of the mess that lays around me.
But the question is as I walked through the continious shadows of the darkness. There occurs for me a feeling of trepidation. It ails my soul, I am afraid to take the next steps.
For me the New Year does not toll rebirth and joyous. But fear, what awaits me! I have no sense of what God may put me through this year. My heart jumps, the water drips from the top cieling of the labyrinth. My torch’s light resonates around me, giving me hints upon the right direction of where I am to go.
So as I walk into the New Year, I worry and fear what lays ahead of me. I am almost afraid to walk through the Labyrinth. But I know sooner or later I must walk, or I may be stuck where I am, making no progress.

Did you draw that? Way cool!
Fear is real, but it will NOT be your Master. Remember who said, “Nothing in all creation–not height nor depth, angels or demons, nor any powers shall separate you from the love of Christ.”
I know about fear. It got the better of me after a long period of stress. I know why they use the expression “cold feet.” Your feet really can go cold! But I held close to the Word. A good passage for me came from Psalm 56: “In God I trust, I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?’
Can I suggest a book title to you, from what you say about books you like? “Outcasts of Skagaray”, by Andrew Clarke. Musterion Press.
Thanks for the suggestions for passages!! Thanks WTB, your words are a great reminder that fear cannot sever us from the love of God. Andrew C., I will try to look up the book you suggested! It sounds really good
