“You never realize how crippled you’ve become because of “fear” until you come out of it.”

It may sound slightly unorthodox, but I have to conquer the fear of potential.  It is seemingly an oxymoron to encourage others to fight for their dreams and pursue purpose, when I live in fear of what would happen if I’d simply let go and completely pursue mine.  WHAT am I AFRAID of?! Could it really be potential?  Clearly its the only obvious answer; something that doesn’t even have a definitive existence.  So, in short, I’ve been afraid of “nothing”!!!  The irony lies in the fact that this “nothing” can easily be manifested into failure,… rejection,… and worst case….. GREATNESS!!

I cannot let the subjective nature of potential keep me from LIVING!!  There are several things that MUST get done, and I have no choice but to continue walking, trusting, and believing that He will fulfill all the promises He made to me…. I just have to continue moving forward in FAITH, conquering fear.

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV)  “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

It is impossible to pursue my HOPES dreams without faith (Duh!  It’s the substance of things HOPED for!)!!!…. It’s that simple :).

Hebrews 11:6 (KJV)  “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”
