Motivation Monday: Not Being Afraid

I don't know about you, but I really like these Motivation Monday posts. It sets my week off right, and puts me in a good mood. I saw this fact on Pinterest, and was blown away.

The phrase "Do Not Be Afraid" is written in the Bible 365 times. 

There are 365 days in a year. Coincidence? I think not. Three hundred and sixty five times this is written.  I know that I don't have to be afraid. God is guiding me and protecting me on a daily basis. I should live each day without fear because my days are already planned out for me. I don't know what each day entails, but God does. He knows about the hard times, and the exciting times.

Not being afraid is hard. I come from a long line of worriers. I started worrying from a young age. When I was little I was afraid that I would swallow my tongue, or quit breathing. So I wouldn't swallow, and hold my hand under my nose to make sure I was breathing. (What kid thinks of these things?!) I didn't have to worry though, because God was there. He knew I was going to worry about that, so He guided my parent's into telling me to "not be afraid."

My goal is to live fearless. God is on my side, and with Him, I can face any challenge!

How can you live fearless? I'd love to hear from you, leave me a comment and let me know!
