Feel the Fear

feel fear tshirtI saw a t-shirt recently that caught my attention.  Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway!

As I thought about the implications of this statement I did a Google search just out curiosity.  I discovered that there is also a book with the same title.

Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway [Abridged, Audiobook, CD] [Audio CD]

The world’s foremost producer of personal development and motivational audio programs gives you the tools to face the fears that hold you back.
We’re all afraid of something : beginnings, endings, changing, getting stuck. But fear doesn’t have to hold you back from happiness or success. You can change your relationship with fear — and in this dynamic, inspirational program, Susan Jeffers, Ph.D., feel fear bookteaches compassionate concepts and highly effective exercises that help you unravel the complexities and reverse the effects of fear.

I haven’t read the book but the sentiment of the title says a lot about faith.  God doesn’t call us to be completely fearless, but rather to trust in His power and move ahead anyway.

“Every day is important for us because it is a day ordained by God. If we are bored with life there is something wrong with our concept of God and His involvement in our daily lives. Even the most dull and tedious days of our lives are ordained by God and ought to be used by us to glorify Him.”
Jerry Bridges, Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts
