I recently heard a friend say – “Fear and faith cannot co-exist.” At first I really wasn’t sure about that, but then it sunk in, clicked and made total sense to me. I think it’s true. The Bible tells us not to fear 365 times! I am personally one who, from time to time, has had killer anxiety. Sometimes the anxiousness turned into full blown panic attacks. It was absolutely debilitating. I’ve even recently had a bout of anxiety. Thankfully friends prayed for me and offered encouragement. My hope for us is that we’ll power through and have “faith over fear.” Lean in and tap into God’s power. That’s a lesson I’m learning daily.
“Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” – Isaiah 41:10
“If you want to conquer fear, don’t sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.” – Dale Carnegie
