Fear Is A Bully

 

imgblog fear is a bully treeYou’ll be okay.
You’ll get through this.
Even though it may not seem like it right now.

Right now it seems impossible.
Right now it seems too big.
Right now all the “what if’s” are threatening to drown you in a mental and emotional tsunami.
Because that’s what fear does.

It lies.
It threatens.
It manipulates.
It exaggerates.
It shows you the wrong future.
It’s a hostage taker and an incapacitator.

Fear is a bully.

And yet…

Fear has only the power we surrender to it. Only the life we breathe into it. It is fed only by the nourishment we provide.

And it has a defeater.
An enemy.

Jesus.

Life breather.
Truth teller.
Love giver.
Power possesser.
Peace bestower.

And so on any given day, we get to choose.
Jesus or fear.

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. -Psalm 56:3-4
