fear and faith

It feels more and more lately like an endless battle between the two. Which is why I scrounged up some good old "Jack" Lewis insight:

"God, who forsaw your tribulation, has specially armed you to go through it, not without pain but without stain."

"It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird; it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad."

(I particularly like the last one because he uses the phrase "jolly sight")
