Say to yourself, “I am capable.” God has gifted you with talents, and no matter your age, you have a purpose. Isn’t it time you lived that purpose as the above have and breath in the fresh air of freedom instead of the negative thinking that has dogged your steps til now?

Everyday I remind myself to persevere. I don’t know that I can’t do something unless I try it. Danger doesn’t factor into my decision, especially when I hear how, with an exhaustive passion, a friend lives in a country hostile to Christians. Her life is in danger everyday. Yet she lives courageously, not letting the surrounding circumstances deter her from God’s purpose.

What are you doing today to live fearlessly?
