Be Not Afraid

I sat down to write a post for tonight and all I kept hearing were the words, “Be Not Afraid.” So I’m passing them on to you. Things are happening all around us right now. Don’t let it get to you. Don’t let it stop you from loving and trusting in the Lord. Don’t let it make you fearful or harsh or callous. Don’t let the sound of the wind drown out His still, small voice. Believe in Him. Stay close to His Word. Stay faithful.

You are in my prayers. You, yeah, you! If you will, please pray for me, too. Whoever you are, wherever you are, may His peace and joy fill your days and guide you in the night, no matter how dark the night may become. Remember, the storm won’t last forever and you are not alone. We’re all in this boat together. Shalom! Amen.
