A Message of Hope

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind (1 Timothy 1:7).

This is the message God wanted me to share these past few weeks, to all you readers here to my blog. May we learn to rest in His love, because "there is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love" (1 John 4:18, NKJV). We have so much to fear in this world. Fear of the known, and fear of the unknown. Some of our fears are real, and some are imaginary. In any case, fear causes great distress. On the other hand, love is motivating and calls to action. Love strengthens us even if we feel weak. Therefore, as we go about this week, let our actions, words, and thoughts be dictated by love, and not fear.
