A Postcard and a Prayer from 
Mennonite Women USA - June 2016
 Greater than Fear 
by Gracie Tijerina

Dear Lord, I am greater than having the fear that used to lie within me. 

My childhood and part of my adult life, I lived with fear; afraid of failure, being ridiculed, or of what people were going to say. 

In the song, "Lord you have come to the seashore, searching neither rich nor wise, desiring only that I should follow, I heard you call my name "Graciela."

You weren't looking for courageous, or un-afraid, but just to follow.  
Taking the leap of faith, trusting you I took a risk at the age of 63.
Here I stand as a Hesston College graduate without fear of the future today. Thanks be to God.
