You can 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 lived through his horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.” You must do the things you think you cannot do.
From Psalm 27:1: “The Lord is my light and my Salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”
