You said, be fearless.

Some fears are hard to conquer,

Nothing to fear but fear

Itself, it’s said all the time.

No one knows how hard it is.

—–

Be brave; be bold,

Fearlessness is born fraught,

With thoughts running wild,

I’m terrified inside to try,

Conquering fears is difficult.

—–

May your footsteps lead,

You on the path, being —

Someone who isn’t —

Afraid of what the future —

Holds, because we’re all human.

—–

Don’t be scared to go,

Where ever your footsteps need,

Time will tell you step,

Leap, don’t be full of fear.

Life for the living, is hope.

—–

Don’t be afraid our —

Saviour said, be strong.

On earth, we fight hard.

Life is a while we are breathing.

Breath, have faith, it will work out.

—–

Days our tough, tiring.

Follow where He leads us fearless.

You’re in no danger.

He lights pathways taken, beams–

Lustrous light leads.

—-

Telling you where,

To place each footstep, travel

Where He knows, we go,

Unafraid, fearless,

We’re strong, He’s with us always.

      1. You’re welcome 🙂 we’ve been commenting back and forth so much that I thought I was following you! Then I couldn’t find your posts in the reader. So I hopped over to see what’s doing in your neck of the blogosphere and noticed that I was not following you. I fixed that issue 🙂

  1. Taking fearless footsteps seems such a challenge. Especially when, honestly, we’re afraid. We should have faith and in that faith enough courage to take the step, even if our fear isn’t totally conquered.

    Great writing about difficult choices, buoyed up by belief.
