It is usually more painful coming to a decision that carrying it out. Fretting and worrying about the outcome, especially about fear of confrontation, stifles the truth of the matter. If we have weighed up the situation then we must find courage and take the next step. Delaying only causes more anxiety.
It is sometimes in fear and trembling that we work out our salvation and at others with ease and understanding. Whatever the case may be we must face up to what we have to do.
