When fear greets you, it’s important that you look straight into its eyes and don’t flinch. It’s necessary that you stand your ground without giving a single inch. When it moves forward, no matter how scared you are, it’s imperative that you respond by taking a determined step forward and let it be known that you are calling its bluff and will not back down to its loud bravado. Fear is a bully, and like most bullies if you succumb to its will, it will punk you every opportunity it gets. But if you stand your ground, if you fight back, if you keep pushing forward; fear will be powerless against you. ~ Sean King
When you get to the edge and feel like you’re going to fall over at any moment. When you scream for help out of desperation and no one comes to your rescue. When you you call to the heavens because you feel like you’ve done everything you can do, and you get no response. That’s not the silence of God abandoning you, that’s the silence of God waiting to see if you’re going to use what you’ve already been given to rescue yourself. That is the moment when you need to trust your faith and find the courage to take the next step. It may not be easy, but you are Able.
