Profess Courage

"Courage daughter!  Your faith has saved you!"  ~Matthew 9:22

"Do not panic, but look to Christ."  ~St. Francis de Sales

"Be not afraid."  ~Pope St. John Paul II

"Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil; for You are with me."  ~Psalm 23

You are not powerless.
Fear is powerless.
Fear was crucified-
crowned and pierced
by the blackest of sins.
But our God rose above
the pounding of the heart
the sweating of the palms
and the terror of the imagination.

He faced fear head-on
and conquered it.
And now He holds your hand
and gently guides you
as you face your own fears.

What is there to fear?
Put your trust in Him, child of God.
Kick the shackles of fear aside
and profess courage.
Look deep inside and find
His strength thriving within your soul.
Believe in His love for you
and live.
