One of the things that hold most people back from reaching new goals is fear. Fear of rejection, failure, loneliness, or to be rejected. In this episode I will discuss how you can overcome the feeling of being afraid to take a chance to reach new goals in 2018.
What fear do you have in life?
Loneliness – let’s be together
Hurt – or hurt others
35 As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” 36 So they took Jesus in the boat and started out, leaving the crowds behind (although other boats followed). 37 But soon a fierce storm came up. High waves were breaking into the boat, and it began to fill with water. 38 Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. The disciples woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you care that we’re going to drown?” 39 When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Silence! Be still!” Suddenly the wind stopped, and there was a great calm. 40 Then he asked them, “Why are you afraid? Do you still have no faith?” Mark 4:35-39
Don’t let the presence of a storm cause you to doubt the present of God.
Just because you are afraid does not mean Jesus is not with you.
You’re in the storm for his purpose
2 Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. 3 For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. James 1:2-3 NLT
