Encouragement for a Winner
Scale the wall. Fear is ignorance dressed in its Sunday best.
Fear is the sound of a father's silent grieving.
Scale the wall. Fear is the absence of truth and compassion.
Fear is plastered with layers of self-doubt.
Scale the wall. Fear is a universal companion to sensitive souls.
Fear is simply a one-syllable word begging to be replaced.
Scale the wall.
Fear is limited.
Managed by faith
Conquered by grace
Hope lies on the other side
Ready to embrace and support
Life's eternal goodness.
