Polymer Clay Day 91: Courage Swirl Pendant

This attribute is so indispensable in reaching one's full potential. There are changes that I feel in the deepest parts of myself would free me from being less than I was created to be if I had the courage to make them. Fear keeps me from acting. I pray for courage and to hear God's voice so loudly I have no choice but to obey. I also pray for the wisdom to differentiate my will from His, since I can so easily convince myself that what I want must be coming from God.

Bible verses on courage;

Deuteronomy 31:6
Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.

1 Corinthians 16:13
Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.

2 Timothy 1:7
For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.

Hebrews 13:5-6
For He Himself has said, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." So we may boldly say: "The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?"

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.

WOW. These verses remind me that absolutely nothing that could happen to my earthly body can change who I FOREVER am in Christ. Whenever I find comfort in the midst of fear, it is because I have remembered this truth. It is horrifying to be in a world of uncertainties and the only constant is change. That is except for God, never changing, everlasting, perfect love. Therein lies peace.
