Some say that fear is burden, but I believe that fear is really the pusher, so to speak. Once you are faced with fear you can either go one of two ways. You can cower in the face of fear or decide to overcome it right then and there. Case in point, fear pushes you one way or the other.

So, what determines the outcome is your reaction to fear. Does fear define you or do you define fear?
I was listening to a sermon from my church, Forefront, and the pastor couldn’t have been more on point when he said, “Courage is not the absence of fear, courage is what you do in spite of fear. Courage is when you look fear in the face and say, “No”. Sometimes it takes child-like faith to overcome your fear.”
Next time you are faced with fear, remember it is a choice you are making. Let fear push you to be a better person and to push your limits. Have child-like faith and surprise yourself with what you can overcome!
