~Triumph Over Fear~



Fear is debilitating.


It takes time, effort and faith~


lots and lots of faith...to move forward or at least stand in the face of it.


If you don't, you'll get mowed over!





I saw this lil' guy and he seemed to fit with this powerful sentiment.

Sometimes I feel like him-standing, but eyes bugged out and a little pale! ;)



If there is fear in your heart today...I pray the Lord allow you to triumph in the face of it!

  9. Hello Melena -

    I totally agree with you - is living in fear REALLY LIVING at all? Lets all CLAIM the confidence of FAITH. What a bold and meaningful card all packaged up so nicely.

    You inspired me today,
