Its so hard, sometimes, to not be fearful. Especially when it seems we're surrounded by bad news or circumstances. Cancer, infant death, the swine flu, car accidents, etc. Or, in my case, miscarriage.
I'm fearful today. I woke up panicked that something happened to the baby. I haven't felt sick yet today, and other pregnancy symptoms don't seem to be bothering as much today, either. Some pregnant women would rejoice in that. It petrifies me.
Even though I am afraid, I know that the bible says that God has not given us a spirit of fear! (2 Timothy 1:7)
God will hold my hand!
For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you. (Isaiah 41:13)
He will never forsake me!
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6)
He will guard my heart and mind, and give me peace!
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6-7).
“I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears” (Psalm 34:4)
He will deliver me from my fear!
