Quote Worthy

"Fear never wrote a symphony or poem, negotiated a peace treaty, or cured a disease. Fear never pulled a family out of poverty or a country out of bigotry. Fear never saved a marriage or a business. Courage did that. Faith did that. People who refused to consult or cower to their timidity did that. But fear itself? Fear herds us into a prison and slams the doors. Wouldn't it be great to just walk out?"

Boy, that is such a true quote...sometimes it is so much more comfortable to allow fear to keep us in our prisons then to have the courage to step out, ("Better the devil we know...")...even though God has opened the door WIDE for each one of us.
