Fear surrounds me. He is in my efforts, he is in my passions, he is in my heart. Fear follows me. He knows every turn I make; he is but a few steps behind me and his pace is quickening. Fear smothers me. He takes my joy; he steals my comfort. It is he that tells me it is better to do nothing than to fail. It is he that tells me I am not good enough. It is he that would have me waste my life away. Fear. Fear wants me to live below my potential. Fear wants me to shrink. Fear fights against my success. And for a while Fear was winning.

Then I found Peace.

Peace fills me. He completes what I lack, He provides me with what's been taken, He fills in what I've lost. Peace joins me. When I feel that I am alone I find Him by my side. Peace lifts me. He takes me above my troubles and beyond my fears. It is He that gives me strength to continue. It is He that encourages me to become. He shows me my worth. He pushes me to live above my potential, to achieve even more. Peace. Peace wants me to grow, to experience. Peace wants nothing more than my success. And it is Peace that I look to. It is Peace that I will allow to enter my life.

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.
John 14:27
