I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. – Nelson Mandela
We all have fears in this life, but we cannot live in fear nor are we called to. Instead, Jesus calls us to live in love and faith, to walk in peace. That completely goes against fear. I have a lot to learn about not living in fear, but by God's grace, He is teaching me to trust Him more, lay down my fears at the cross and move forward with the courage of a lion.
