“Those who, with temperance, with grace, face the strong winds blowing against their faces, are those who appreciate the sweetness when the breeze finally finds its way to their backs.” – Tyler Knott Gregson
“Be messy and complicated and afraid and show up anyways” – Glennon Doyle Melton
Fear has been a big theme lately.
Or rather, how to overcome fear. And in the last few days it occurred to me that we look at fear and grit our teeth and determine ourselves to overcome. When the reality is, the choice to not fear isn’t a choice we can make. Rather, the choice to trust replaces fear. That’s how we overcome.
I recently cleaned up my Pinterest boards and my largest board right now is one called “Encouragement”. It’s full of verses, Biblical truths, and quotes from Godly men and women. It’s one of my favourites, and I consistently go back to it time and time again to remind myself of truths I cherish.
