I once was scared. Afraid to be myself, thinking I would be rejected. So I hid from the world, not letting anyone know the true me. Fooling myself into thinking I was happy, I just tried to fit in. Not until I truly surrendered everything to Christ did I feel accepted. I found my identity in Christ, and now I know that fear has no hold on me. I no longer hide, but seek others. I went from being timid and shy, to having courage and an abundance of joy. I once was lost, but now I am found.
