Good Evening, God
I hear, FEAR NOT . . . reverberating in my mind. But, then a much more positive message from the Welcoming Prayer came into my Heart. I let go of my desire for security, affection and control, and embrace this moment as it is.
My moments are so easy to embrace! Why do I leave the Present, and focus on situations that are pending. Situations that I have no power or control over. Hmmm. I forget that I am the one who chooses what my mind focuses on. Me! No one is forcing me to focus on dark possibilities.
Fear and Worry do not keep Dark Things from happening. But, they do keep me shut down and unlit.
Furthermore, God, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE TO YOU. How good it that! It was by TRUSTING You that Saint Paul was able to praise You from the inside of a jail after having been severely beaten. (Acts 16:25-) That TRUST and FAITH in You is how Paul was able to urge us all to REJOICE IN THE LORD, AND AGAN, I SAY REJOICE. (Philippians 4:3)
So, I am realizing, that it is not nearly enough to say FEAR NOT! It is far more nourishing to plant positive and hopeful verses in our Hearts! And REJOICE in YOU.
