1 John 5:14

forgiven...pardoned...released...made complete...feel safe...made whole...comforted...healing...being remade and restored...revived...awakened my soul...breathed new life into...strengthened...joyful

This list could just go on and on. I can't even begin to tell you all that Jesus has done for me. The last couple of months He seems to be working in my life in ways I really never thought was possible. Changing me and making me into the person that He wants me to be. Actually...not only who He wants me to be but someone I have always wanted to be! Pretty sure I have said this in a post before, but...if you don't really mean what you ask for in prayer...Don't pray it! If it's what the Lord also wants for you He will start answering those prayers when you least expect it. At least...that's how it works for me. The upside of the down side...which is having to surrender your will to His...is that whatever He has you do will be more than okay! So really, there is no downside. I am learning to not let fear control my life. When you know God is in it...let it happen! Don't stop it for fear of the unknown...even when you don't understand why.


Psalm 91:2

I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress;
         My God, in Him I will trust.”
        


Romans 8:15

For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”

1 John 5:14

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

Hi Chelle. This is a lovely post. Fear is so limiting to our growth. And I love the scriptures you've used, especially Psalms.
God bless
