I read a while back that the Bible has 365 uses of the phrase “fear not” or “be not afraid.” I haven’t been able to verify that, but I can tell you that it is one of the most used themes in the bible. In this podcast, Tony discusses fear and how it can paralyze our actions.
Quote: If anyone on the verge of action should judge himself according to the outcome, he would never begin. Even though the result may gladden the whole world, that cannot help the hero; for he knows the result only when the whole thing is over, and that is not how he became a hero, but by virtue of the fact that he began.” — Søren Kierkegaard from Fear and Trembling
Scripture: The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear? The LORD is my life’s refuge; of whom should I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
The LORD is with me; I am not afraid; what can mortals do against me? Psalm 118:6
Reflection: Do you feel your inaction is keeping you from achieving your goals? Do you feel you are moving in the direction of your goals? What about the idea of baby steps?
