Why Do I fear?

Why do I fear?
He will not ask of me more than what I am capable
He will provide the resources to MAKE me capable
Every time
He doesn't expect performance to the level of ...
Someone else who is
Smarter or
Could do it better
He just asks me to be me
Do what I am able
With the strength I have
And the strength He gives

It's such a simple idea
Something I'm trying to get across to the kids
All the time
As they struggle with their grades not being good enough

And yet I too can be torn, frightened
By potential failure
Not reaching a certain mark
(not even sure what that "mark" is)
An uncertain future
