The other day while I was driving down the Spur (the stretch of road between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg) I thought about how before I moved here (and even for a little while after) I got extremely nervous driving on that road. But now that I drive it every day, it doesn’t make me nervous or scarred anymore.

God’s word says that He has not given us a spirit of fear but one of power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). How many times do we let the fear overtake us rather than using the power, love and wisdom that God gives us.

What if I had given over to my fear of driving on curvy roads? This fear could have kept me from moving to TN which would have caused me to miss out on so many blessings and good things that God had planned for me.

How does fear impact your life? Do you let it keep you from doing things that you want to do or that you feel God calling you to do? Or, do you press on despite the emotion?

At this moment, I am intimidated by being a single mom. Tons of questions go through my mind that I don’t have the answers for, but I will choose not to let this fear control me or keep me from moving forward. I will do what 2 Timothy 34:4 says and seek the Lord because He will hear me and deliver me from ALL fear.

Psalm 27:1
1 John 4:18
Proverbs 29:25
