The message of Christmas is: Fear Not. Fear is playing not to lose. Faith is playing to win. If you run away from what you’re afraid of, you’ll be running the rest of your life. It’s time to face your fears!

God is in the business of strategically positioning us in the right place at the right time, but divine appointments don’t just happen.
