A familiar lyric to anyone who loves Gaither music is Gloria's line, Because He lives, all fear is gone. We all struggle with fears and anxieties from time to time, whether because of things that have happened or things that we think may happen. After God helped her overcome a time of fear in her life, Renee Swope of Proverbs 31 Ministries concluded that "Fear loses its power when we actively trust God more than what we fear."

If you are struggling this week with fear or anxiety, may He comfort you and give you rest as you cast your cares upon Him.

A thought from the Word ...

Isaiah 43:1b
“Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine."
