Faith is powerful. When you accept Jesus into your heart, He gives you a very special gift: faith. But it's not over yet; you decide to use that faith or not.
We all are afraid sometimes and worried also. The more and more we fear or worry, the more and more we live on those things. And our faith weakens. Our faith in Christ doesn't decrease because of the things that scare or worry us, but because of our decisions to be afraid or worried or not. That faith deep down doesn't come out or show if we dwell on things that scare or worry us.
If we pray or talk to someone about your problems and worries, you've already shown A LOT of faith. And like it says in the Bible in the seventeenth chapter of Matthew in verses 20-21, "He replied, 'Because you have so little faith, I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, "Move from here to here", and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.' "
Don't be afraid to be yourself. Just be faithful as you say or do anything that you love; don't worry about the people looking at you or judging you. Be a faithful servant to Jesus the best you can each day, and you will surely live an AMAZING life and have the courage to step out and be His follower.
