“Imagine your life as a wagon filled with everything you represent. To pull that wagon through life you are going to need horses. Now imagine that your fears and your faith are the horses you can call on. Of course all of us have more fears than faith, so let us say we have eleven horses of fear and only one horse of faith. If we put any of the horses of fear at the head of the team, they will be hesitant to lead, unsure of their capacity, afraid they will not be able to do what is expected of them. And your wagon won’t go anywhere. But if you put the one single horse of faith at the lead of the team, the horses of fear will follow. In fact our fears when led by our faith will provide the strength to pull our wagon. The challenge for all of us is to put our faith and not our fears in charge.”
Noah benShea, quoted in “100 Words” by William Murtha
