Be Strong And Courageous!

"Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
Joshua 1:9 NIV

There are times in our lives that we are facing great challenges. We found ourselves scared to step toward the challenges. All we see are the risk that lies around. But it is either, we take the step of faith and enjoy the abundance ... or be left behind and stay struggling.
.
These happened to the Israelites when they were about to invade the Promise Land, flowing with milk and honey. But many complained about the risk of doing so because they heard about the giants that live there. God gave them this promise that He will be with them wherever they go. And indeed, those who believe on His promise had experienced the abundance of the Promise Land.

Such an encouraging thoughts of you... you are right, there are lots of people who are afraid of the consequences of their decisions, but one thing that can help if what your doing is the best for you is when you feel good about it -that you will never feel guilty now and in the future it means that you know you're right, don't hurt others and if it is not contrary to His teachings. Only then you can say that you are making the best decision.
