On Overcoming…

“When we fear failure more than we love life, when we are dominated by thoughts of what we might have been rather than by thoughts of what we might become, when we are haunted by the disparity between our ideal self and our real self, when we are tormented by guilt, shame, remorse, and self-condemnation, we deny our faith in the God of love.”

I am so guilty of this. Aren’t we all at one time or another? I need to remember this, God does not give us a spirit of fear but of power and love  and a sound mind.

How do you overcome those feelings of inadequacy or fear/guilt?
