Battling Fear

Hello all. Everything has been interesting over the past few weeks. I have especially been battling with fear, and it seems to be getting worse. Crazy thoughts have crept in, and I’ve been concentrating on them instead of driving them out.

The “The Purpose Driven Life” helped with dealing with this fear. I was reading today and found that God cares for us even in the mundane parts of our lives. I’ve come to realize that no matter what I do in life, if I do it for Him, it will please Him. With that said, I’ve learned that if I change my focus to God, and remember His love for me, things get a lot better. I remember the hymn… “Turn your eyes upon Jesus/Look full in His wonderful face/And the things of this world will go strangely dim/In the light of his fullness and grace”. I’ve found that focusing on God’s love greatly eliminates all the fear I had. I don’t have to worry about anything!

Worrying and fear goes against what God wants for me, and it slowly destroys me as I continue thinking about it. With God’s help, and my eyes focused on God, things will get better.
