It is a poor thing to fear that which is inevitable. (Tertullian, 2nd-3rd century B.C. Christian writer)

Is there anything you can do about the inevitable? What will be, will be, they say. But, fearing it just makes life harder while you wait for the inevitable. Wouldn’t it be better to prepare for it? If you know it’s coming, don’t sit and wait; plan, consider the options. Look for ways to handle what’s coming.

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