    Amen. Thank you. Fear not…

    “Fear of aging, fear of illness, fear of poverty, fear for the church, fear for my friends, fear of what the future holds for my family…fear of becoming too fearful.”

    i’m familiar – i think most of us are – with that list… one thing stands out as i look at it – and think on it…
    they are things that we don’t control…in the times we now live, even poverty isn’t an option for so many (could well be more of us the way the nation is headed – IMHO) …

    so i guess my point is, it might be better to just get mad – and pray and pray for the ones who are just too tired to pray today

    to this day, i don’t understand the power of one speck on a dot in the universe calling out to God who, ultimately, controls it all… i understand why we do it, what i can’t get my mind around is why it counts, why the prayers of the Saints are stored up in heaven, why doesn’t the Father just tell Jesus something to the effect of: “that one we can’t answer, toss it – this one we can, dispatch an angel – there’s one that calls for a here and now miracle so let US Three in One act on it STAT!” and so on… but those prayers are stored up until the Day … and the logic of a spec on a dot addressing the almighty God and each word of that spec is heard by Him and assigned a heavenly action (if not an earthly one)? God have mercy on me

    pray, if for no other reason than the devil doesn’t want you to do that

    just sayin

    p.s. i wish an old cat named Axel was as smart as Miss Kitty… he, too, thinks that he is entitled to Divine protection – wherever he goes and the coyotes are prowling now

    Em,

    Those single prayers matter…a lot.

    No fear.

    Life happens, you can’t really do much about many things and they’ll happen anyway so why fear it?

    Enjoy the ride and overcome what you can, don’t fear what you can’t change. We’re all going to get sick at some point, suffer loss, die etc. Fear is a waste of time.

    When I feel fear creeping up, i stop looking at the news and start spending more time on art, beauty, nature, friends – things that feed my soul rather than deplete it.
    I try to realize without the internet, if be completely oblivious to things I can not control anyway, so I consciously turn off those things and enjoy the bliss that is ignorance.

    Acceptance is key IMO.

    You are in fact going to suffer at some point to some degree.

    You are going to die at some point.

    You will lose someone, you will lose money, you will lose your health etc.

    Accept it and enjoy the good that is also sure to be there mixed in with life. When the other stuff comes, oh well, to everything a season. Personally, I’ll go out with my boots on and with a smile on my face, ready for whatever comes next.

    ….you just don’t want to be the thing that tries to take me out before my appointed time 🙂 I won’t be afraid at all, I’ll smile and return fire 🙂

    London,

    I am being very intentional about doing likewise…I’m going to try to stay offline completely over the weekends and modeLondon,

    I am being very intentional about doing likewise…I’m going to try to stay offline completely over the weekends and moderate myself the rest of the time.
    I get overwhelmed when I add it to the pile I have to carry offline.

    May His peace and comfort overwhelm you…
