Ever feared something that ended up not being as bad as the images and thoughts that plagued you for weeks, maybe months before?  Maybe a medical procedure, a confrontation at work or with a friend.  Fear is a normal feeling but is usually worse than any pain you might experience and we tend to feel we are not strong enough to survive it.  Yet oftentimes you  haven’t a choice but to face it.  But you do have a choice in how you approach that dark, scary path.  You can succumb to your fears or you can place them squarely on the one that can carry the heaviest load – in fact He carries you!  Place your fear on Him and He will give you the peace the surpasses all understanding (Philippians 4:6-7)  Let His words wrap around you and settle in your heart until peace replaces the fear.
