I am back, and the week ( sorry for Friday) of auto posts is over! Hopefully the content picks up for you this week, although it is hard to beat a week of straight scripture. I saw this tweet a few weeks ago and have finally got around to sharing it. It has taken some time, because I have been sort of stumped on the question.
Figure out what you're most afraid of today, then ask God for the courage to decide you're not anymore @lovedoes

Hm, this may not puzzle you has much as it has puzzled me, but regardless, it’s a great way to attack fear. Oh, I have struggled with this because I have been really trying to see what I am really afraid of, and I am not talking about spiders, or heights, or clowns. So, once you figure out what you are afraid of, turning it over to God turns it into a matter of trust and not a matter of fear.
And that may, for some of us, be the thing we fear the most!
18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18 (New International Version)
