Do it afraid

Fear comes to us all at some point in life,
Fear over the future, the state of our finances,
Or will our sons make the right choice when
He chooses himself a wife. 

It is ok to feel fear, and still do what’s right,
Fear is not something we can get rid of with
Much effort or fight. The perspective of fear
God wants us to know, he will be with us where-
Ever we go.

Fear will always try to keep us from going forward
The enemy’s plan and strategy is this. To be mediocre,
Lack self confidence, and coward. Courage is not the
Absence of fear, but to press on when the feeling of 
Fear is near.

    Abraham, Your last sentence is power packed with insight. Pressing on is the only way to overcome the evilness that causes a sad heart. The tools that you mentioned, are the greatest weapons used against man's soul. Well said, my friend. Love, Dane PS are you related to the other Abe...The former U.S. President? (Just wondering about a family name! Smiles.)
