Fear is our enemy.
It speaks a language that often no one else understands.
It taunts you. It blindsides you. It is our Chinese water torture.
It hits the young and the old, the rich and the poor.
It spreads and often seems to play it’s hide and seek game.
It’s nested in the mind but it affects your whole body.
It’s yours but it spills into the life of all those around you.
Some allegedly seem to thrive on it – the daredevils of our day – while most of us are sidelined by it.
God knows all this.
That’s why often, His message was : ‘fear not’
When I am afraid,
I will trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise,
In God I trust; I will not be afraid.
