“If you think it’s all about you, and I think it’s all about me, we have no hope for a melody.” – Excerpt from “It’s Not about Me,” by Max Lucado.
Just take a look at what Lucado says about life in Fearless. “Can you imagine a life with no fear? What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats?”
“We subject ourselves to a position of fear, allowing anxiety to dominate and define our lives. Joy-sapping worries, Day–numbing dread, repeated bouts of insecurity that petrify and paralyze us. Fear will always knock on your door. Just don’t let it in. Learn to trust more and fear less.”
“Feed your fears and your faith will starve. Feed your faith, and your fears will,” says Lucado.
