Quotes on Fear


"Fear never wrote a symphony or poem, negotiated a peace treaty or cured a disease. Fear never pulled a family out of poverty or a country out of bigotry. Fear never saved a marriage or a business. Courage did that. Faith did that. People who refused to consult or cower to their timidities did that. But fear itself? Fear herds us into prison and slams the doors." From the book Fearless by Max Lucado

"The presence of fear does not mean you have no faith. Fear visits everyone. But make your fear a visitor and not a resident." Max Lucado

"You may be transferred, enlisted, commissioned, reassigned, or hospitalized – but brand this on your heart – you can never go where God is not." Max Lucado

"Somewhere between Pollyanna and Chicken Little, between blind denial and blatant panic, stands the levelheaded, clear thinking, still-believing follower of Christ. Wide eyed, yet unafraid. Unterrified by the terrifying. The calmest kid on the block, not for lack of bullies, but for faith in his older Brother. The old people of God knew this peace: "Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear, though war arise against me, yet I will be confident." Ps. 27:3" From the book Fearless by Max Lucado

"Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy". Leo Buscaglia
