Faith vs Fear

12 Feb

A very dear friend of mine gave me a copy of this poem. 

Faith vs. Fear

By Sean Key, National Director of Sales Development, Mary Kay Cosmetics 
A faithful person believes that the best is yet to come.

A fearful person believes the best has already come and gone. 

A faithful person seeks opportunity.

A fearful person seeks security. 

A faithful person wants to be pushed.

A fearful person wants to be protected 

A faithful person thinks all things are possible.

A fearful person thinks that very little is possible. 

A faithful person accepts the help of others.

A fearful person is afraid to let others in.  

A faithful person has achieved the victory in her head and heart before she tries.              

A fearful person makes up her mind that it won’t work and never tries. 

A faithful person recovers quickly from a crisis.

A fearful person finds ways to exist in a crisis. 

A faithful person recounts her victories.

A fearful person recounts her failures.   

A faithful person believes that she can’t win if she doesn’t try.

A fearful person believes that she can’t fail if she doesn’t try. 

A faithful person relies on God.

A fearful person relies on herself. 

I find myself on the “Fear” side many times.  This poem helped me identify my weaknesses.  I am working on making a 180 degree turn to the “Faith” side.
