There comes a day when you realize that the fear never really goes away – that if you really want something, you have to be willing do it afraid. And maybe this is the only way you ever get to discover your fullest potential. Maybe you just have to dive right in and face the thing that scares you the most.
Because in the end, it’s not the rejections and so-called failures that will haunt you. It will be your own potential left unexplored. So maybe you don’t need to wait until you overcome your fears to take the first step forward. Maybe you just need to know there’s something more important than fear. Something greater. Something worth fighting for. And maybe overcoming your fears is the least important part of your story anyway. Maybe what matters is that you’re scared but still determined. Shaky but still standing. Afraid but still willing to try.
As a Christian, I was told that fear is showing you don’t trust God. Yes, this is true but that doesn’t mean I don’t get scared and it certainly doesn’t mean I don’t trust God if I get scared. Think of it as a little kid jumping into a pool where a parent is waiting. The kid is scared but know they are safe. Let us remind ourselves today that fear is not from God. Love is. And love is what we need more off in todays world.
With COVID-19 being the engine that drives our world, it’s easy to let the fear of the unknown get to you. There is nothing wrong about being scared. The problem is when you let that FEAR stop you from being informed. Face your fears about COVID-19 by being informed. The more you know, the more you will be able to judge what is right for you and your family.
