For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands, for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. ” – 2 Timothy 1:6,7 – (ESV)
Very little can be done under the spirit of fear. ~ Florence Nightingale
 
Negative minds full of fear and doubt produce negative lives, which can ultimately destroy your life. ~ Joyce Meyer
 
If you listen to your fears, you will die never knowing what a great person you might have been. ~ Robert H. Schuller
 
Fear is a self imposed prison that will keep you from becoming what God intends for you to be. You must move against it with the weapons of faith and love. ~ Rick Warren
 
The greatest mistake we make is living in constant fear that we will make one. ~ John C. Maxwell
 
The presence of fear does not mean you have no faith. Fear visits everyone. But make your fear a visitor and not a resident. ~ Max Lucado

Overcoming fear is something we all face when we endeavor to do new things, such as take a new job, fall in love, create a new product line, or start a business. For example, when we consider where to invest money, we must face the fear of failure. In short, there can be no progress in life without taking risks. You cannot succeed in life if you give in to fear
 
FAN INTO FLAME THE GIFT OF THE POWER TO TRY AGAIN, AFTER  FAILURE.
FAN INTO FLAME THE GIFT TO LOVE AGAIN AFTER YOU HAVE BEEN HURT.
FAN INTO FLAME THE GIFT TO RISK AGAIN .
 
 
The GIFT to TRY AGAIN,
The power to lead, risk, speak and get things done.
 
The GIFT to LOVE AGAIN.
The power to love beyond limits.
“We know the love that God has for us, and we trust that love ….
because God’s perfect love drives out fear.” (1 John 4:16a, 18a NCV)
 
The GIFT to RISK AGAIN.
The power to fly straight in the middle of the storm.
“without faith it is impossible to please God” –  (Heb. 11:6).
It is better to risk failure to do what God wants you to do than to do nothing.
FAN INTO FLAME THE GIFT  OF BEING THE PERSON YOU WERE MEANT TO BE.
 
Fear is the end of your story  …. perfect love starts the story again…..
