Fear - A Four Letter Word
Fear is a four letter word.
What if we had said no? Said no to adoption? Said no to his file? Said no to his medical needs? What if we said no out of fear? Because when it really boils down to it, it is fear that would have kept us from him and nothing else. Fear that our comfort would be disrupted. Fear that we couldn't handle, take on, or "deal."
Fear is a four letter word. A four letter word that needs to get out of the way of GREAT things. A four letter word that doesn't deserve credit.
Did God work through those fears? 100%. He took those fears and shoved them where they belong and replaced it with FAITH. Faith that moves mountains. Faith that walked, not blindly, but CONFIDENTLY.
What is keeping you from doing great things? What is keeping you from shoving fear aside and walking in a faith that has freedom, strength, confidence, and power?
What if we had said no?
We wouldn't have him.
