President Franklin Roosevelt said in his first inaugural speech, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” It was 1933 and our nation was in the throes of the Great Depression. His bold statement that “fear paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance” made a huge impact and set a vision of hope for revival and prosperity. His message empowered courage and creativity.
In our own current ever-changing circumstances we can easily retreat into fear. But fear leads to paralysis which then lends itself to discouragement! In Steve Martin’s absence, my encouraging word is this: “Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand” (Isaiah 41:10). Repeat it to yourself this week—and to others. With faith and each other we can face anything!
