Fear Not

"Fear though not; for I am with thee:  be not dismayed; for I am thy God:  I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness."

~Isaiah 41:10

"Frequently it is not easy to face up to that which is expected of us.  Many think that they cannot do it.  We need a little more faith.  We should know that the Lord will not give us commandments beyond our power to observe.  He will not ask us to do things for which we lack the capacity.  Our problem lies in our fears."

~Gordon B. Hinckley
"Let Us Move This Work Forward," Ensign, November 1985, p. 83

Ever had to do something that terrified you?  I have....a ton of stuff...I discovered this scripture and quote in high school and many times they have been my mantra as I've struggled through hard things in my life.  Having faith in Heavenly Father and His timing can be difficult.  There has been--and frequently still are--times when I have struggled with the timing of things in my life.  Some days I feel inadequate, but that fear of failure can be overcome as I put my trust in my Heavenly Father.
