Creative Inspiration: The Bible

As a writer/photographer/aspiring video-maker and someone who teaches writing, I know that one of the biggest issues artists deal with is fear: of their own talent, of the value of their work, of never being successful, and of the way their lives might change if they are successful. It's a daunting issue, and I deal with it everyday in my own work and when I talk to students. So I thought it was fitting that I saw this Bible verse on a billboard while driving home yesterday:

" For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." - II Timothy 1:7

I love that quote. The meaning is so rich and relevant, especially in today's times. Fear the root of all evil.
