And then I thought of the Truth who became man and taught us, "You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
The truth is that there is nothing to fear because the worst has already happened. Jesus was crucified. Death devoured Him instead of us. He submitted, He conquered, and He saved us.
The truth is that the Truth of Christ is so much more true than any fear we can imagine.
There are days, weeks, months, when the evil in this world winks at me through peep holes. When I see the sinful choices, unhealthy indulgences, and manifold consequences to myself and those I love, and I am paralysed. But I do what I did when I was a skinny thing in pink tights;
I remember the truth.
I experience the freedom from fear.
And I dance.
