Did you know that the most used phrase in the Bible is "Do not be afraid"? It is. And I'm only beginning to understand why. The past year has brought me to a point where I've had no choice but to face my fears. And you know what? God is always with me. He's always good. And most of my fears weren't real, and none of them were as big as I feared they were. So whatever it is you are facing right now--broken relationships, financial issues, health problems, I encourage you: "Do not be afraid!" God is with you and will be beside you. And there is nothing so sweet as the recognition of this and lounging in that blessing.
