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.
