It's O.K. to be afraid...

...but it's not O.K. to live in fear.

"Fear is useless, what is needed is trust." --Luke 8.50 AND Mark 5:36

There are many things going on with the world today that it is easy to feel useless, alone, depressed, and scared. I wonder often that we think that we cannot feel this way, that we should always have a happy face or boundless energy. Certainly, we should work toward and strive daily to answer God's call in our lives, to persevere despite the ill-will around us. Perhaps, persevere because of it.

We are human.

We feel. We love, rejoice, shout for joy, cry with happiness. We also yell, shake with frustration, crumble in pain, and feel utterly and completely hopeless.

And that is O.K.

Acknowledge it and move on. Ask God to help you overcome your fear. Have faith. Have trust. If you can say nothing else, say this, "Jesus, I trust in  You."

"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." --Romans 12:21
