Week 11: Hold your breath and GO FOR IT!

hold your breath :)

Listen…Sometimes big and little people are afraid to DO SCARY THINGS!

I get it.  I, too, sometimes am afraid.

I am afraid of what people may think.

I am afraid of what people may say.

I am afraid of how I may look.

I am afraid at how I may sound.

I am afraid someone may not like me.

There are many reasons WHY we don’t do something scary.

But God has not given us the spirit of timidity.  Instead, he has given us the spirit of power, love and self control! (2 Timothy 1:7 ESV)

That’s pretty awesome, right?

So, whether it’s sharing the love of God with your friends or making new friends.  Whether it’s standing up to someone that is not being kind or standing up for someone else that may not have a voice, remember that God has given you a spirit of power!

Hold your breath, go for it…and do what is right armed with the LOVE of God!

Because the Love of God never fails! (1 Corinthians 13:8)

What is it you can do today, even though you are afraid?  Be bold, be brave, pray hard, and just do it!  For the Lord your God is with you (Joshua 1:9)…

Always in His Grip,

Missions 52
