“Afraid” by nakedpastor David Hayward

This has been me. I distinctly remember going through periods of severe spiritual testing where I wasn’t sure if I knew anything. I still had to get up there every week and open my mouth. I have come to learn since that admitting I don’t know is a great place to start.

The thing is… many people in the church feel this way. They are terrified. They don’t know. They live with uncertainty. They dwell with doubt. Questions torment them day in and day out. But they don’t have to open their mouths and say something. They can suffer in silence.

Not so Don, this preacher. His suffering is bound to leak out somewhere. His only hope is that those who are with him are in touch with their own suffering and can show him compassion. By the fear written across his face I suspect he questions their support.

Hey everyone! I’m taking all of my originals out of my online store in the next couple of days. Make me a reasonable offer on an original you are interested in: SHOP!
