There's No Thief Like Fear


The news. 
A relentless onslaught of fear. 
Propaganda. 
Always the worst, most hopeless, 
terror-inducing perspective possible. 

Despair chains the listener. 

Fear is a force of evil. 
No good comes from it. 
Fear is not of God. 
He doesn't teach with it, lead with it, 
guide with it, or warn with it.

Fear not. 

Turn away from it. 

Despise it. 

God is good. 

Look up!

  3. Palavras gentis podem ser curtas e fáceis de falar, mas seus ecos são
    verdadeiramente infinitos.
    (Madre Tereza de Calcutá)
    Realmente o medo é diabólico, pois nos afasta da confiança em Deus.

    Um abençoado inicio de mês!!!!

    1. This is so beautiful I want to put the English translation here so everyone can read it:

      Kind words can be short and easy to speak but their echoes are
      truly endless .
      ( Mother Teresa of Calcutta )
      Really fear is evil because it keeps us from trusting God .

      A blessed month of beginning !!!!

  4. Hi Sandi! It's so true that the news these days is just so sad. Without faith, I think I would be despairing. Love that advice to 'look it up'! Yes, it's all there for us in the Scriptures. Let's take heart!
    Happy 4th weekend!

  5. Yes and amen. Fear is so disabling but when we place our hope in God there if freedom from our fears. I know, it is a lesson I have had to learn more than once...
