Fear and Trust

Hand Reaching Out“When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You.”

- Psalm 56:3

Quote of the Day, Sunday.

The beginning of another week: a day to rest, reflect and prepare!  Today’s quote of the day is a verse that addresses something we all encounter in our lives – fear.  The causes vary, and it may manifest itself differently from one person to the next, but it is there all the same.

What we do with fear, however, is our choice.  We can choose to hide from it or we can face it – but keep in mind that hiding from fear is merely one way of letting it consume us.  Hiding from fear allows it to hold us back and prevent our growth.

One reason we hide is because we doubt ourselves – our abilities, our opportunities and our strength.  When fear sets in, take a note from the Psalmist and lean on a strength greater than your own!
