After World War II a young shoemaker, Janez Rus, went into hiding at his sister’s farmhouse outside Zalna, Yugoslavia, because he was afraid he would be punished for his pro-Nazi wartime activities. For the next 32 years he hid because of his fears. He cried when he heard happy voices outside and he cried because he was afraid to attend his own mother’s funeral. Throughout those years he did nothing. He never left the house, and could only look down at the village in the valley. When he was found after more than three decades in hiding he said, “If I had not been discovered, I would have remained in hiding. So I am happy that this happened.”
Our fears can paralyze us. They cause us to hide from life and reality. They can keep us from accomplishing our God-given purpose.
