Do Not Fear

I am so sorry to anyone whose families have been affected by the major bankrupcies and mergers occuring right now. When I first heard these things, I immediately, like any good, comfy, American would do, had a twinge of fear for the future.

But fear no longer has a strangle-hold on me these days. Not the way it used to.

Now, on Christ the solid rock I stand. He immediately spoke this promise over my tender thoughts:

1"God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in
trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give
way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging."
- Psalm 46:1-3

At the end of the day... none of these earthly things matter. That notion used to make me afraid.

Now, it is my peace.

1 friends had a thing or two to say...:
