Even when I think I’m not afraid, my actions speak louder. It may not surface as trembling and panic, but fear shows up as an explosive angry fit, a quiet depression or a bitter heart. I see a little bit of each of these infiltrating my days, and it’s time to “practice what I preach.” (too many clichés in such a short blog, I know!)
I am driven to my knees and to the source. I am believing Him today, not my empty words or those of any other inspirational writer or quote I come across. His Word is my stronghold. His promises will carry me. His light will progress me. His faithfulness will demand mine. I am turning away from fear and to His loving comfort today. I will walk in the knowledge that His plan is perfect, and when I feel that fear creeping in, I will call on Him who knows what’s best for me in every situation. In Christ I am fearless and favored, therefore I will not falter. Unwavering is His love, and outstretched is his hand. Praise Him for his faithfulness and for His truth which declares…….

Father, take away my fear and replace it with your perfect peace. AMEN
