Frank risks taking

"It has been my philosophy of life that
difficulties vanish when faced boldly."
- Isaac Asimov

Christianity is not a theory or speculation, but a life;
not a philosophy of life, but a living presence.
- Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The task ahead of us is never as great as the power behind us.
- Author Unknown

Better to love God and die unknown than to love the world and be a hero;
better to be content with poverty than to die a slave to wealth;
better to have taken some risks and lost
than to have done nothing and succeeded at it.
- Erwin W. Lutzer

"Praying always with all prayer and supplication ...
that utterance may be given to me,
that I may open my mouth boldly to make known the mystery of the gospel,
for which I am an ambassador in chains;
that in it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak."
Ephesians 6:18-20

Lord God, give me boldness to speak
and let me step over the problems.
Give that I always shall do well the tasks given to me,
that I ask in Jesus name, amen.

  1. Dare Mighty Things

    “In the battle of life, it is not the critic who counts; nor the one who points out how the strong person stumbled, or where the doer of a deed could have done better. The credit belongs to the person who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; who does actually strive to do deeds; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotion, spends oneself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement; and who at worst, if he or she fails, at least fails while daring greatly.

    Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those timid spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat.”

    - Theodore Roosevelt
