The hardest enemy to conquer is one without a face. Like living in a world with no horizons Staring into a mirror when all you see Is the wall behind you. Like trying to contain ice. On the face of the sun. Where do you begin? Where do you end? When the thing you fear the most is inside of you? Well, you make friends with the Fear-Slayer   I could say ‘make friends with Fear’- Something about keeping enemies close, Or better the devil you know; But Fear is a shape-shifter. It has as many faces as there are moments in your life. If darkness is the absence of light, Then it’s a waste of energy to fight the night, Simply add Light and you restore your sight.   The best way to face the future is to be one With the One whose already in it. Who subdues it, Puts it on a leash, Leads it back to your present and asks, Where would you like do go? Years are nothing to a God Who has the Past, the Present and the Future Like three marbles in His pocket. Your life plan is like a newborn baby, In the hands of a first-time mother: Perfect, precious, worth the wait.   I could say make friends with Fear. But it has as many faces as there are moments in your life. Make friends with the Fear-Slayer.
