Goodbye Fear

today's reading.
Psalm 56    

the blog.
AFRAID and trust--those are key words for me today in Psalm 56. There was a period in my life when anxiety controlled me. I had panic attacks and I was afraid a lot. So when I read Psalm 56, it speaks to me. It tells me straight up that I don't need to fear because God is on my side and I can trust Him. That is such a relief and comfort. It also shows me that there will be times when I will be afraid and that I'm not alone in having those feelings (even David had them). 

I'd love to tell you that I never have anxiety anymore, but sometimes I still do. But today I'm better equipped to handle it. Now, much more than before, I'm in God's Word. And, I have God's promise that I can give it over to him and that He will sustain me (Psalm 55:22).

In what areas do you need to trust God when it comes to fear or anxiety? What from this passage encourages you? Tami
