The WORD on Wednesday: Fear Not

 
Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you.
I Peter 5:7 NIV
 
 
There is no fear in love;
 but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment.
 He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
I John 4:18 KJV
 
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
 I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10 NIV
 
Have not I commanded thee?
Be strong and of a good courage;
be not be afraid, neither be thou dismayed:
for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Joshua 1:9 KJV
 
Never worry about anything.
But in every situation let God know what you need in prayers and requests while giving thanks.
Then God's peace,
which goes beyond anything we can imagine,
will guard your thoughts and emotions through Christ Jesus.
Phil 4:6, 7 GW
 
 
The LORD is good unto them that wait for Him,
 to the soul that seeketh Him.
Lamentations 3:26 KJV
So much I could say today.
New concerns and challenges;
 old burdens.
So tempting it would be to give in to fear
(that great enemy of serenity)
and trudge down that well-traveled road
(a journey I know oh so well).
 
I know I started to...
but then chose instead a different course.
 For my heart only has room today for ONE God--
the ONE who made the heavens and the earth--
and I choose not to let fear take His place.
 
Blessings this Wednesday morn!
Aimee

Thanks! Lucky you-have a GREAT time there!
If you are referring to the beach photo, that was taken at Neskowin Beach, located between Lincoln City and Pacific City. FYI, if you haven't been there before, know that there is a short walk from the parking area (across a not too busy neighborhood street and then along the creek onto the beach). Even though there are some houses, condos nearby, I really LOVE this beach, especially on somewhat foggy, magical days:)
Blessings,
Aimee

@Willow~
Me too! Thanks:):)

Thank you for these words today. I have a tendency to slip into worry and fear if I don't stay strong in the Word of God. After all, we were never promised a perfect place here on earth were we? But He has said that He would be enough for us.
I need to remember that when the worries and fear come crowding in.
Blessings,
Betsy

@Betsy~
You're very welcome!
Me too, Betsy. I tend to be like Peter and focus more on those nasty waves and storms, rather then on God who has given us so many promises-- the changes God made in Peter's life gives me hope!
Thanks for your words too!
Blessings,
Aimee
