I worry about EVERYTHING!
I’ve been like that all of my life. The ‘what if’s’ of life have always undercut my courage to get out into the world and make a difference.
We’ve all got our challenges when it comes to fears, phobias, worries, anxieties… and, if we are not careful, these things can wind up dictating the direction and choices of our lives. There is nothing so tragic as someone passing up one of their ‘dreams’ (a career, relationship, travel opportunity, etc.) because fear and worry ruled the day.
There are no easy answers to overthrowing fear and anxiety in life. Most times success is found in courageous self-discipline to face and overcome those things that keep holding us back.
In my quest to become bettrer and better I am going to remind myself of this wise saying from Paul the Apostle (2Timothy 1:7):
God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power and of love and of self-discipline.
