fear not...

turn, o Lord, my fears around.
let them become a positive force
for good in my life until i--
fear not that i might fail.
but fear rather that i might
never dare to discover my potential.
fear not that i might be hurt.
but fear rather that i might never
experience growing pains.
fear not that i might love and lose.
but fear rather that i might
never love at all.
fear not that people may laugh at my mistakes
but fear rather that God will say
to me, "o you of little faith."
fear not that i might fail if i try again.
but fear rather that i might miss my
great chance for happiness if i failed to
give hope another opportunity.
Amen.
