Unafraid: Living with Courage and Hope

Fear of Failure

Do you struggle with fear of failure? Maybe you have a track record of failure, so it seems reasonable to be afraid of failure. “When fear of failure really teaks over, you begin to avoid taking risks--because every risk includes the possibility that you will fail, that you will lose face, that you will embarrass yourself or people will laugh at you.” according to Rev. Hamilton. So, we don’t act on our dreams. We don’t move. We are stuck. Yet over and over we find that when God gives us a dream, God goes with us, and we therefore do not need to be afraid...courage pushes us through the fear. What is your courage grounded in?

Blessings,
