The Exodus of Fear

There is no “right time”.Only now.Now is the right time.Faith will carry youwhere your vision fails,little sunflower.All you need is the courageto give up your false sense of security.There will be dark times aheadbut they hold no power over you.The sun awaits you.Reach for it,for Him,and He will surely reachfor you. ~lt
