1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
Do not fear new things. I have had a lot of change in my life over the last 6 months. I have moved out of home; I no longer live with my mother. I am supporting myself as a student, paying my own way through college/university. I don’t have a job at present, and the government provides the money I live on. It covers everything I need, but doesn’t leave as much room as I would like.
I recently looked into signing a contract for a mobile phone deal. I have never done anything like this before. It was a good deal, and suited me very well. I would be paying the cost of my phone off gradually, while at the same time getting $10 per month to spend on text messages. It was scary, because I had never signed a contract before. But one thing I had to remember is that I can’t let fear stop me from stepping out and trying something new.
The main reason I was afraid to sign the contract was because I had never done it before. I am learning new things everyday, especially since I am not living at home anymore. Everything I do is something new, and I am experiencing many things for the first time. It’s also pretty scary. I’ve made some mistakes, and I’ve had some failures. But I can’t let that stop me from stepping out into something new.
