Lately, I've come to realize how much mental, emotional, and even physical energy I spend dreading certain tasks or events. Most of the time, the things I dread aren't nearly as awful as I think they are going to be. Well except cleaning the toilet - that one is never good. I think my habit of dreading has been worse since I began to think about ordination writing and interviews. Those are big dreads.
I'm working on a "just do it" attitude.
What do you dread? Is dreading a habit for you?
Lord, take away this dread, for I know you do not come in a spirit of fear, but in a Spirit of peace and courage. Amen.
