In between fear and joy
When we overlap fear and joy, what emotion are we feeling? What can best describe that experience?
Maybe it is a kind of delight when miracles happen.
Maybe it is a kind of happiness when our prayers and wishes come true then we realize the weight of responsibility.
This unique space between fear and joy teaches us about the intricate nature of our emotional experiences. It shows us that life’s moments can be multifaceted, allowing us to feel a wide range of emotions simultaneously. In this space, we learn to appreciate the beauty of life’s surprises and challenges, embracing the opportunity for growth that comes with them.
And maybe this blend of fear and joy is what Easter is about.
Matthew 28:8-15. Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went away quickly from the tomb, fearful yet overjoyed, and ran to announce the news to his disciples.
