    Thanks. I think about what Joyce Meyer talked about when we sometimes are afraid to do things, she said, "Do it afraid". That statement sticks with me. I don't believe we are to have paralyzing fear, but there are times when we do get afraid of things, people and our own circumstances. You are right, Christ does make us courageous and because of that, I can do all things through Him and He will give me strength.

    I love that comment by Joyce Meyer, about courage. Many people believe that to have courage means you are not afraid. So this quote brings courage and fear into perspective.

    Christ is what makes us courageous. Knowing that he has got control over our situation. (like Joel said) We don't need to fear or worry.
