Does fear ever seem to overtake you? When it does how do you handle it? React by shutting people out, maybe even God out? Sometimes we don't understand why life is the way it is. Maybe you just feel like you are alone. Oh yea...there are people all around you but you're still alone. Why is that? You have family...but it really doesn't feel like it. You have some friends...but they all have their own life. And your life, well...it just seems to go on. Maybe you're just hanging on at the end of your rope and...it's starting to fray. Have you been there in that never ending struggle of...do you keep pressing forward or...?
It seems to be some crazy battle you're in for your life at times doesn't it?
Fear...Peace Sadness...Joy Depression...Happiness Dark...Light Death...Life
What it comes down to is basically this...
Forward...Backward New Life...Old Life Truth...Lies God...satan
Which one are we going to choose to listen to today?
Joshua 24:15a (NLT)But if you refuse to serve the Lord, then choose today whom you will serve.
Think back to how your life was before.
Psalm 143:4-5 (NLT)I am losing all hope;
I am paralyzed with fear.
I remember the days of old.
I ponder all your great works
and think about what you have done.
Then really think about...ponder...all God has done for you in your new life. Do you really even want to think about going back?
It's really up to you.
