Do you ever feel like an iceberg?
For a lot of us, we are more below the surface than what people think. Most of my chaos is below the surface, and often, the craziness of my life comes to the surface.
For me, I hold a lot back, it's because I've been so hurt before. And so if I hold back, and don't open myself up, then I won't get hurt, but I am tired of iceberg living. I want to me more like a lily pad. Beautiful and flowering on the surface, the best parts of me, and what's below is strength.
Josh 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
