Sometimes fear creeps in your life and sometimes it seems to grip you in a way that you can't really understand or overcome on your own. I believe that this is satan trying to keep you from being joyful, and I know that fear is not from God (hence the scripture at the top of my blog). So, I've had some fear issues and some anxiety the past few days, and though I've heard this scripture over and over and over again, I've seen it the past few days SO many times, that I am quite sure that God is talking to me. I choose to trust and believe. I choose to know that He is good and He has my best interest at heart.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. YOu will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
