WELCOME FRIEND!!! I’m so glad that you decided to visit my webpage! Whether our encounter is by accident or on purpose, I’m hoping I leave a lasting impression that you’d like to encounter again! Next time you visit feel free to bring a friend to join in on the fun!
As if the title doesn’t give it away, the first thing you should know about me is that I’m afraid of spiders. Like something out of a Spiderman comic book, my fear developed when I had a bad experience with one as a teenager. Now unfortunately, I wasn’t mysteriously graced with superhero abilities like climbing walls (which would have been fun in college) but I did begin to ask myself some very important questions after my fear turned to terror. This blog site will take you through my Spiritual journey of discovery into how overcoming my fear of spiders led me into living a purpose driven life and revealed the characteristics that God was trying to teach me through, none other than….spiders.
I’ve used the four stages of fear to breakdown my journey of discovery. Those 4 stages are: Freeze, Flight, Fright and Fight. Coincidentally on purpose, these stages are also how I react to seeing spiders, even though I rarely make it to the “fight” stage when it comes to those creatures. Each section will serve to categorize a particular situation, event or lesson I’ve learned or encountered. For example, the times when I froze when God told me to do something that was difficult; or when I wanted to run rather than face the consequences of my actions. Yes, some of these lessons could actually qualify for all 4 categories but I’ll be choosing the more prevalent ones.
Aside from finding my journeys entertaining at times, I pray the lessons I’ve learned: adds to your wisdom, contributes to your Spiritual growth, sparks intrigue into your personal relationship with God and helps you navigate your journey a little more smoothly!
