Fear Not

If you notice my header there's a beetle crawling on the leaf. This picture was memorable to me that's why when i saw this template i decided to use it.

When i was in College i have this little bookmark with a bible verse that says: " Do not be afraid I will never leave you nor forsake you" and in the picture is a beetle clinging in the stem. I always look at this bookmark every time i feel down, it was my source of strength and inspirations. I picture myself as the beetle, clinging, trying to cross from one end to other end, holding on battling against the strong wind and rain. But i'm not afraid, 'cause i believe in His promise that He will never leave me.

From then and until now, many times in my life God has delivered me from life's storms. I'm still here in this world, God gave me a second chance to live after i escaped death last year. Now i want to use this life to serve Him.

But in my situation i can no longer go out and personally share His words, that's why i'm glad i found this new way to share my faith. I'm happy i can write about it here in my blog.

Thank you Lord that i have the means to share your grace and kindness through this blog. I pray for your wisdom and guidance that i'll be able to tell the world how you loved us and how Jesus sacrificed for our salvation..in Jesus name..Amen

When fears attacks my mind I remember that the Lord did not give us a spirit of fear, but power of love and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7)

For many years I suffered from fear, anxiety, and worry. I was in bondage. About four years ago the Lord said to me, "Stop allowing yourself to be so agitated and full of fear. I have given you my peace. Walk in it"

I knew that I had read that in His Word. It was John 14:27 "27Peace I leave with you; My [own] peace I now give and bequeath to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. [Stop allowing yourselves to be agitated and disturbed; and do not permit yourselves to be fearful and intimidated and cowardly and unsettled.]"

I printed it up and taped it on my bathroom mirror. It is still there to this day. Little did know how often I would need to see that scripture first thing in the morning or right before I was going to bed. There was even one time when I was going through it and the Lord had one of best friends send me flowers and in the post card was that same scripture.

The Lord has gone out of His way to let me know that He wants me have peace and not allow my circumstances to intimidate me. I no longer ALLOW myself to be fearful or cowardly because I know that our God is faithful and He is for me. I fear not because my faith is in Him and I trust Him with my life!

P.s. Thanks for serving God right where your at. You are in my prayers sister. xoxo
