What Happens When You Wear Unafraid and Go Climbing {Day 28}

As it turns out, if you don’t start the climb for fear of falling, you’ll never get to the top of the wall. Or the mountain. And you’ll never learn how to climb it. Never learn how to be unafraid. Instead, you’ll just stand at the bottom like a caged little bird that wants to fly and use the wings he’s been given but can’t because of the trap he finds himself inside.

And if you don’t wear the proper harness, you won’t get very far.

If you start climbing without a secure rope and the right climbing tools, you might get all the way to the top, but you will have everything to fear. No room for wrong footing. No one to keep you from falling flat on your back if you do slip.

If you only look at what you fear and wonder what it might be like to face it, but don’t put on the unafraid, you’ll never know how fun it is to float all the way down.

And if you don’t face the afraid, stare it down right in the eyeballs, you will never get to the real kind of living that inspires, enjoys, conquers.

If you don’t know the One Who holds life itself right inside the palm of His hand, then you won’t know where to properly place your fear. And it will come out in the wrong places. And it won’t let you live like you were really designed to live.

That’s why we went climbing the other week. My girls and me. Because we put on our unafraid and went for it.

Why not put on your unafraid, too? It’ll look good on you. I know it.

*This is Day 28 of a 31-Day series called Life Unafraid. Catch up here if you’ve missed any. You won’t regret it.
