Doesn't this look inviting? I love that the flowers are on both sides of the sidewalk! There is shade from the burning sun, and the colors speak of summer all the way. We can't see the doorway, and the iron fence and gate don't especially welcome us in. This is a quote from Lysa TerKeurst's new book: "With you, Jesus, I'm forever safe. I'm forever accepted. I'm forever held. Completely loved and always invited in."

When I did Mary Kay a few years back, I remember having to go to a woman's house that I didn't know for a facial Party. I REALLY didn't want to, but I was pushing myself because I felt it would help me to be less shy about things like this, so out of my comfort zone I went. I didn't feel welcome, but I made the best of it, and chalked it up to a step towards overcoming fear. Today, I will do something just because it may be a fearful thing. Freedom is so worth it! "God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of love and of power and of a sound mind."{2 Timothy 1:7}  He will guide you and help you to do what YOU can't do in your own strength. God is not a giver of gifts to one person, but to ALL people. He is faithful in all that He does. I took one step at a time, and I am still taking one step at a time, and so can you.  YOU ARE LOVED!
