Question of the Week: June 3

Does fear feel safer than trusting God?

DoesFearFeelSafer Than Trusting God

 

The weird thing about being afraid for a long time is that you get comfortable with it.

And before long you start to believe fear itself keeps you safe and keeps bad things from happening. I felt like fear protected me. As long as I stayed vigilant, cautious, and wary, nothing bad would happen.

Instead of depending on God for protection, I held tight to something destructive.

The problem is, we let the bigness of grief and pain overwhelm the obvious: God loves.~Susie Davis, author of the book Unafraid
