Defeating fear is the first step towards love
At first glance you would think this was a little girl with a bird. It is much more than that.
It is a picture of a line of fear that both crossed over.
In essence, this is what ‘fear conquered’ looks like.
The bird is 12 years old and has never sat on anyone’s hand except for mine. His fear and mistrust kept him from trusting anyone else.
The little girl is 8 and she has always wanted to hold this bird but fear kept her from reaching out to pet it.
Finally she reached her hand out from the grasp of fear and ventured to pet the birds head.
Because both over came fear, love and friendship evolved. It took one of them to cross the line first.
It is odd what a thin line there is between the two and by defeating the one the other grows stronger.
2 Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
What fear could you conquer that would open the doorway to a friendship or love?
