“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me” (Psalm 23:4).
The difference between courage and cowardice has nothing to do with whether or not fear is experienced but, rather, the response to the fears that inevitably confront us. We either flex and step forward into our fear or flinch and remain frozen in our footsteps. Walking forward into our fears and uncertainties is the telling sign of a faith willing to move beyond the predictable comfortable, and familiar routines of life. Life will inevitably lead you into a place you have never been before. Whatever your fear today, step into it.
