Courage is Fear that Prays - Vicki blogged about this earlier today and I was really struck by it (as many other readers of Paolo Coelho have been, I am sure).
Courage is needed in many aspects of life and so is prayer. I find myself needing both more and more recently. I may not like talking about it but I feel the need to write, if only to get it out of my mind.
Sometimes you face circumstances which you think you can control, only to find out that it is yourself whom you cannot control. I need courage to face these kinds of situations. I feel a different kind of fear that I have not felt in a long time. I need to pray for this fear to become the courage that Paolo Coelho is talking about.
