Fear










fear eats faith

words are unsaid because of it
tears are shed too

fear is subtle
insidious

fear creates more fear
it squeezes
it mocks
it steals

fear causes confusion
regret

brings depression
makes flight

starve it!



For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

  3. Awesome Lorrie! This should be read in every church or prayer group! Well written.
    When fear shows up, faith leaves!
    Let's remember those two words, a new testament Commandment: fear not!
