In recent days, I have had several conversations with different people and the subject at hand was “fear”.
We often use other words to describe our feelings ”“ like worry, concerns, anxiety ”“ so we don’t use the word “fear”.
Our fears, if we are honest, are legitimate. We fear getting an incurable disease, the death of a loved one, losing our jobs, never finding a mate, our mate leaving us, our children becoming sick, having a car accident, and many other circumstances.
But here’s the problem with our fears ”“ all of these situations may never occur in our lives. The fears live in our thoughts.
The very first day of reading a Lent devotional turned my thoughts to Psalm 1, where I read:
“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. (verse 1-3, NKJV)
Won’t you join me at W2W Ministries where I will be sharing more on dispelling our fears and discovering anew the joy to be found in following Jesus.
