fear not

One of the most widely used phrases in the bible is "fear not."  There is probably a good reason for that.  We humans fear many things.  When I was a kid, I was afraid of the Bogey man and scary movies.  Today, I am still afraid of scary movies, but adult living brings so many other fears.

We fear change.  We fear challenge.  We fear anything that upsets the status quo.  We fear the unknown. And oddly at the same time, we fear failure. 

So many of the things that we need to succeed, we are afraid of.  We fear failure, but are more afraid of change.  So we end up failing many times because we did not have the determination to succeed.

Fear not.  Make the most of your opportunities.  Take advantage of the doors that are open to you.  Make good decisions, but don't be afraid to make them. 

It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
