our inner fire goes out.
It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being.
We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”Â
– Albert Schweitzer
“I know no more encouraging fact than
the unquestionable ability of man
to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.”
– Henry David Thoreau
“The real irony of spiritual growth is that
instead of feeling some miraculous experience,
it feels a lot more like going to pieces.”
– Baron Baptiste
We’re all intimately familiar with fear. It holds us back and takes us off course, but pastor-author extraordinaire Max Lucado uses the 200+ pages of his latest book, Fearless, to encourage moving with faith over fear.
Lucado embraces a straight-forward conversational tone, utilizing metaphors, symbolism, Biblical and personal stories that quickly move the book along, reinforcing his ultimate point: fright and doubt are closely related; have faith that God’s got it. The essence of Lucado’s message is that God is powerful, has a stellar track record and is stronger than your fears, so why fret?
“The worship of safety emasculates greatness.”
