Wednesday Randomness

So far, I’ve gone 22 days in my fast from social media for Lent. So far, so good. Apart from feeling completely out of the loop in terms of what’s going on with my friends, all is well. I most definitely have not missed the running political commentary on the new President, whether pro or con.

I had another thought about courage. It isn’t always the absense of fear. Sometimes, courage is being afraid– even terrified– and stepping out anyway. 

Fear isn’t always bad. If you have absolutely no fear, it may be because you live a safe life with no risks involved but also no growth. When you finally decide to step out of what’s familiar into the unkown, there’s always fear that can paralyze you or motivate you.

I picked up yet another Bible translation over the weekend. This one’s the Williams translation. It’s somewhat similar to the Phillips translation in that it was done by one individual and isn’t strictly a word-for-word reading but more of trying to capture the original authors’ intent.

Life is good, God is great, and all is well.
