Over the years, I've learned that taking a dog by the collar and forcing it doesn't work for many reasons. Not only does it scare the dog, it's physically difficult. What does work is to take the dog by the collar and walk into the kennel run with the dog.
Facing uncertainty alone can be scary. If someone is by our side, it's not nearly as bad.
Maybe today you need someone by your side. Or maybe you need to be by the side of someone else. Either way, we are showing the love of God, who promises to be with us, when we show up in person to face the fears. Sometimes we can't share our fears with another person. Even then, we know our great God knows and walks by our side.
"Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you."
Hebrews 13:5 (NIV)
