Fear & Hiding or Faith & Freedom?


Are you missing out on life experiences, relationships and your dreams because your fear of “what if’s” is bigger than your faith in “God’s will”?

Ann Lander’s poem:
To laugh
is to risk appearing a fool.
To weep
is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out to another
is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings
is to risk rejection.
To place your dreams before a crowd
is to risk ridicule.
To love
is to risk not being loved in return.
To go forward in the face of overwhelming odds
is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken
because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person,
who risks nothing,
does nothing,
has nothing,
and is nothing.
He may avoid suffering or sorrow,
but he cannot learn, feel, change, grow, or love.
Chained by his certitudes,
he is a slave.
Only a person who takes risks
is free.

I would only add that with God, all things are possible. You can choose fear and hide or you can choose faith and be free. You decide.
