when seen from beyond

      When seen from beyond, fear never makes much sense.

“[T]he shadow a thing casts often far exceeds the size of the thing itself. . . . [T]hough some future fear may strut brave darkness as you approach, the thing itself will be but a speck when seen from beyond.” Jim Elliot

“Don’t let yourselves be ensnared again by a slavish sense of fear, devoid of buoyancy of spirit and of trust in God. . . .” Galatians 5:1
