Promise’s Prayer Snippet: Ellrick on Fear

“You can choose how to respond to your fear,” Ellrick went on, “You can fight it, you can succumb to it, or you can choose to live outside of it no matter what claims it makes upon you. If you choose to succumb to it, you are trapped inside of the prison. If you try to fight it, you will find that it is stronger than you are. You will exhaust yourself, and you will lose. But if you choose to live apart from the fear, refusing to allow it to run your life, you will find yourself free from it.”
