Fear and Failure

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

Ball's Falls, Ontario

I've been (slowly) learning not to let feelings of fear or pride cause me to set myself up for failure. I find it difficult to fully relinquish control and accept that failure and rejection are facts of life. I am quick to forget that when we do give up the micromanaging, He is with us even if we fail. We won't be swept over, aka we are never given too much to handle. This verse always silences the negativity running wild in my mind and reminds me that whatever I'm facing today is not going to overcome me. The choices we make out of fear do not have to define us.
