Fear Not

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind." 2 Timothy 1:7

Going to college (in my mind) was never an option for me. I had always planned to join the military after high school. That was my plan. Like most plans, it allowed me to feel like I had control of my future. It kept me from fearing anything because I knew what was going to happen. God knew this and decided it was time to make me fully dependent on Him.

Going to college at UA created many fears in my life. Fear of failure, fear of loneliness, fear of not fitting in. Through these trials, He created a need for Him in my life. He led me, through many students at my church, to the BCM. At the BCM I found Godly friends, amazing leaders, and most importantly Godly teaching.

In 2 Timothy 1:7 it says not to have a spirit of fear. As you make the transition to UA, do not fear. God is always there for you.

Hope to meet y’all this fall semester!
