“God loves us. He wants what’s best for us. And what’s best for us is not to be consumed with worry. Not to live in fear.” ~ What Women Should Know About Facing Fear, pg 86
On Wednesday I invited you to join me on a new adventure of faith: Let’s Be Fearless in 2014! (“FEARLESS” is my one word — my word for the year.) I’m so excited… I can’t wait to see what God’s going to do in us and through us over the next twelve months.
Today is our first Fearless Friday– or Fun Friday — or Free Friday — of the new year!
Scripture is our greatest weapon against anxiety, worry, stress, and fear… It’s so important to hide these truths in our hearts and hold onto them, so we can walk in freedom and become the women God created us to do be!
I’ve put together a list of 52 Verses on Facing Fear that you can download and stick on your fridge or slip in your Bible or journal. There are enough verses here that you could choose one a week to memorize and really meditate on — or you could use the list to find and focus on a few verses that really speak to you.
Just click on this link ~ 52 Verses on Facing Fear ~ to download and print the four-page list. And please feel free to share it with friends and family, your Sunday School class or Bible study group.
Here are some great blog posts I’ve been reading this week, words that really resonate with me — especially as I resolve in my heart to keep fighting for my freedom and to not be discouraged by last year’s disappointments, heartaches or failures.
