Take courage…

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.’”
-2 Timothy 1:7

I want to encourage you. Don’t be afraid. Take courage and do the next right thing.

Don’t be afraid of your future; God is there. Don’t be afraid of global politics; God knows what’s coming. Don’t be afraid of the doctor; God will be with you no matter what. Don’t be afraid of tiger moms, or bridezillas, or your boss. Don’t be afraid of an AA meeting or of a professor. Don’t be afraid of that girl whose number you’ve been wanting for a long time. Don’t be afraid of surgery. Don’t be afraid of confession. Don’t be afraid of conflict. Don’t be afraid of a break up. And don’t be afraid of a break down.

God has your back. You can trust that God has not given you a spirit of fear but that of power, that of love, and of a sound mind. Amen?

Prayer: Dear Lord, whatever is ahead of me, you are there. I have nothing to fear. Amen.

Reflection: How does God’s presence calm your fears?
