“He who has conquered doubt and fear has conquered failure. His every thought is allied with power…”. So says James Allen in his wonderful work, As A Man Thinketh. That would be great, wouldn’t it? To conquer doubt and fear instead of them conquering us. Said and done are two different things, and you know which is easier. So much of what we do in life has to do with what we think: whether we think it’s worth the effort, if we believe we can, if we’re willing to look failure in the face and keep going. I do know this – that faith is like having a shot of confidence directly to the heart. Of course we doubt. Of course we fear. Despite our sometime claims to the contrary, each one of us is acquainted with our personal faults and failures; and because of this we know that we aren’t up for whatever mountain is in front of us. It’s okay, because faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen, and there’s more at work in this tired world than we can imagine. So today, I invite you to stand up to those old discouragers, doubt and fear. They’re invisible anyway. And you, my friend, are more powerful than you think.
