Overcoming Your Fears
“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. Matthew 7:24-25 (NIV)
Are you afraid? Worried? Burdened? Come to me.
Fear and worry are like bullies. When the storms of life blow your way they taunt you and inflict even more pain upon your life. I am a shelter from the storms, but even more so I can protect you from the barbs of oppressing emotions.
Release the things you cannot handle and give your fears over to me. When you place your trust in me and give me your concerns, fear will not have a place in your life. “But perfect love drives out fear…” 1 John 4:18
Because of my love, the only perfect love, you can overcome your fears. And when the storms of life come, when the winds blow and the floods rise you will be able to stand your ground.
Make a relationship with me the foundation of your life. Then there will be no reasons to hold back, no excuses to keep you from living an abundant life. Your life will be built upon the rock that never fails.
Are you looking for the courage to face a difficult situation in your life? Don’t let fear push you around. Place yourself in my hands.
