A Promise

2 Timothy 1:7 - For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind

Granted one might argue that the gentleman pictured above doesn't have a sound mind.  But I love the photo and the message it portrays.  We live in a shark eat dog world.  It knocks us down and takes bites out of us sometimes.  Yet we have a Father in Heaven that created us to get back up.  He does not want us to embrace fear and stay on the beach.  He goes so far as to tell us in this verse that fear is not given to us by Him.  I think we can rightly conclude if its not from Him, its not worth having.

Just wanted to start off your Monday with some encouragement!  Let go of worry, anxiety, and fear!  With God on your side...who can stand against you?
