Fear is something that we all experience. Whether it is something simple like going to the dentist or something horribly frightening. I don’t know about you but I can keep turning my fears over to God and then immediately pick them back up. Sometimes I just don’t want to think about them and don’t share them in my prayers. “There is nothing to fear but fear itself” is a quote from Franklin Roosevelt and it is so true. Experiencing fear is what causes us distress. Let go of that fear. Turn it over to Jesus in your prayers. He can handle it.
Jesus promises that he will meet us in the experience of fear. He tells us, “remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Tell Jesus about your fear. If you’re afraid even to talk with Jesus about your fear, then start there: why it is that you are afraid to talk to Jesus about your fear? Tell him! Jesus is all ears. Jesus has an open heart. And he is waiting.

Amen! I had PTSD, with panic attacks and fear for almost 20 years and after 3 yrs of virtually praying 24/7, or die…
I chose faith in Jesus; laying it all down at his feet.
May 11, 2014… I felt His love envelope me suddenly, and I was not praying. I was arguing with my Mother. But, through His Mercies and Grace, He opened my eyes, to see the TRUTH of His Love being STRONGER in my weakness, and He then, honored those prayers and took away ALL of my fears… Filling me with His PERFECT…LOVE.
His Word says…
Perfect Love casteth away all fear.
I was free. It’s been6 years and His love meets me EVERY morning… Driving away the fear and dread of my days.
Give Jesus…a CHANCE.
