Fear & Faith

Real Estate Agent with Sutton Group West Coast Realty

While looking for some encouragement to help restart my Real Estate career I came across this poem.

I think the author was spurned on by Harry Emerson Fosdick


Where fear imprisons, faith liberates;

Where fear paralyzes, faith empowers;

Where fear disheartens, faith encourages;

Where fear sickens, faith heals;

Where fear makes useless, faith makes a beautiful;

Where fear puts hopelessness at the heart of life,

faith opens the windows on to a new world,

a new life that knows no end.

Harry Emerson Fosdick - I never knew that those were his words but I do like them.

Bob, Thank you for posting this.  One thing that I have found is that if I admit my fear and call on God for my faith, it gets much much better.  Thanks!

Bob, you can't beat faith. It has been the greatest gift given to me and is on the other end of the continuum from fear. Great poem.
