These verses have been running thru my mind a lot lately. Fear is a big obstacle for me...in letting go, going "all in", relaxing, releasing, being content. Fear of the unknown, fear of the future, fear of loss, fear of bad news. But really what AM I afraid? Maybe just the fear of fear.
Fear is a really strange thing. You can't see it, touch it, or hear it. But if given the power, fear can stop you dead in your tracks, inhibit decision making, or just make you second guess yourself. It can mess with your mind, rob you of sleep.
I don't want to live that way any longer. I am done with it. That's why I love the promises of these verses.
- She will have NO fear of bad news
- She will have NO fear (PERIOD)
- Her heart is STEADFAST, TRUSTING in the Lord
- Her heart is SECURE
