As sure as I'm standing here... never have to be afraid.

One of the greatest fears in this life is the fear of rejection. The Bible says that fear grips us. And for me, that's the best example of what it does. It grips us and keeps us from moving forward and claiming all the promises and the blessings that this life has to offer. Being afraid of rejection sometimes causes us to pretend to be someone we are not. It causes us to run from vulnerability and fear that if we wear our true selves on the outside we will surely be rejected.

But then someone comes along that doesn't walk away. They see the real you and they embrace it. They inspire you to become all that you can be and they take that journey with you. And slowly, but surely, the fear leaves and you begin to trust. We all need someone like that in our lives. Someone who lets us experience our dreams and stays with us through all our failures. And as Barry's song says...

As sure as I'm standing never have to be afraid,

Never a truer word was written. It takes just one special person to show us the way and give us the courage to follow our dreams.
So believe in who you are, have faith in your decisions and above all follow your dreams.
