2 Timothy 1:7
What are your greatest fears? Fear is common, whether it be rational or irrational, terrifying or embarassing, serious or silly. It's completely normal to have frightening reactions to situations or events, but God tells us a spirit of fear and timidity does NOT come from Him. Ongoing fear (anxiety) causes us to take our eyes off of God, and that's the absolute last thing He wants from us.
Be brave! Be powerful! Be loving! Be disciplined! Make a conscious choice every day to embrace the wonderful gifts God intended for us!
