“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
“For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” (2 Timothy 1:7 ESV)
God is greater than any fear we face. His power, love, and self-control exceed all timid thoughts and feelings we may have. In him we can have confidence to stand up and do the very thing we “can’t” do… perhaps the very thing we were CREATED to do!
