What are you scared of? Spoiler alert: You have nothing to fear

fam1There seems to have been a running theme throughout my day today and actually throughout the past week or so. I am literally breaths away from ordering the proof of my first book and my emotions have been running high. This has been a long time coming…and I can’t believe the time is actually here that I will have completed my first book. I have been so stressed, so worried about what will people think about the book? How will it go over? Will it sell? Will I be able to explain WHY I wrote it…..so many worries and fears…..

But today driving home a segment of radio conversation pierced through my worrisome daydreams and I heard the announcer say:

The things you are afraid of...are afraid of Him

Think about that for a moment.

What are you afraid of? Afraid of the spirit of depression? Afraid of spirits that want to attack your mind and your marriage? THEY, too are afraid. They are afraid of HIM…the one who is on your side. The one who holds you in the palm of his hand. AND you have nothing to be afraid of. Not the past, not the future, not the failures that drive you to your knees in shame. YOU have nothing to be afraid of when HE is on your side and fighting your battles for you!

I just love that!
