Love this song…
Here are a few really great quotes about overcoming fear. I need to think about these because I can surely become paralyzed when I’m afraid.
The drawings included here are from my collection of original pen and ink drawings. I hope you enjoy them.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. –Ambrose Redmoon
“Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold.” ~Helen Keller
Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor souls who neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat. ~Theodore Roosevelt
Become so wrapped up in something that you forget to be afraid. ~Lady Bird Johnson
You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do. “~ Eleanor Roosevelt
Confront your fears, list them, get to know them, and only then will you be able to put them aside and move ahead. – Jerry Gillies
Procrastination is the fear of success. People procrastinate because they are afraid of the success that they know will result if they move ahead now. Because success is heavy, carries a responsibility with it, it is much easier to procrastinate and live on the ‘someday I’ll’ philosophy. –Denis Waitley
This is my favorite:
For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” Hebrews 13:5-6
