Read this tonight and was not only
reminded of the truth but
"Have you ever thought how infectious fear can be?
It spreads from one person to another
more quickly and certainly
than any of the fevers we know so well.
You can refuse the spirit of fear,
which never comes to us from God.
(And if He does not send it to us, who does?).
Instead, open your heart wide to the
spirit of "power and love and a calm
and well-balanced mind and
discipline and self-control
(2 Timothy 1:7 Amplified).
Because fear is so infectious, let us, for the sake
of others and ourselves,
When we are downhearted or fearful or weak, we are saying to
(by the way we look and by our timidity, if not by our words),
"After all, the Lord can't be absolutely trusted."
We have a Saviour who has never once failed us.
He never will fail us.
He has loved and led and guarded us all these years."
You are my hiding place
Lord have mercy.
Boy do I need lent.
Fall and get up, fall and get up...
I can be doing okay with the anxiety
kind of okay and then
wham! head cold and uncertainty
I needed the reminder
Lord help us
and forgive us.
