— Judy Blume

Overcoming any type of fear can be challenging. Fear is not visible but it exists in our minds and is made evident through our actions.

“Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter.”
— Francis Chan

Fear can be both healthy and dangerous. In one regard, it is a critical response to physical and emotional danger. Without this type of fear, we couldn’t protect ourselves from legitimate dangers and threats. But the other type of fear is the kind that holds us back from reaching our goals.

Genesis 3:9-10, NIV
But the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” He answered, “I heard you in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked; so I hid.”
