Bravery and Joy over Fear 

 We might always carry our fear, many of us because of past emotional or even physical trauma. People hurt us in the past, circumstances broke our strength, trauma scarred us—but we can be strong and courageous knowing that God is near. We can trust Him to never forsake us! 

And yes, it took my dog’s actions to remember that-we forget so easily but the Spirit is good at reminding us.
