Exactly What You Should Never Do

Driving into campus today on the icy, snow-covered roads, I find myself skidding.

I remember my Driver's Education teacher's words:

"Do exactly the opposite of what your instincts demand; turn in the direction of the spin and accelerate."

What? Go faster? In the direction of the spin? Surely, you must be kidding.

It's true. The car rights itself this way. I accelerate and turn where the car skids, and I find I'm free of the danger.

What if God wants me to move in the direction of my greatest fear--accelerating towards the very thing that frightens me--in order to right myself?

I turn into the spin and pick up speed. I face it and find myself free.

Have you ever moved into the direction of your fear and found yourself free?
