My favorite part:
Do I run and leap into God's arms without hesitating? Or do I sit back calculate and ask Him repeatedly, "You're going to catch me right? You wont let me fall? Promise? I'm just not sure. I don't know if I can trust you to catch me. I mean, what if you drop me? It will hurt."
Who's arms better to fall into than Gods?
Let Him have all your worries and cares, for He is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you. 1 Peter 5:7
I waited patiently for God to help me; then He listened and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire, and set my feet on a hard, firm path and steadied me as I walked along. He has given me a new song to sing, of praises to our God. Now many will hear of the glorious things He did for me, and stand in awe before the Lord, and put their trust in Him. Psalm 40:1-3
Yes, the Lord hears the good man when he calls to Him for help, and saves him out of all his troubles. The Lord is close to those whose heart is breaking; He rescues those who are humbly sorry for their sins. The good man does not escape all troubles - he has them, too. But the Lord helps him in each and every one. Psalm 34:17-19
Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
Let not your heart be troubled. You are trusting God, now trust in Me. There are many homes up there where my Father lives, and I am going to prepare them for your coming. When everything is ready, then I will come and get you, so you can always be with Me where I am. If this weren't so, I would tell you plainly. John 14:1-3
Be strong! Be courageous! Do not be afraid of them! For the Lord your God will be with you. He will neither fail you nor forsake you. Deuteronomy 31:6
Fear not, for I am with you. Do not be dismayed. I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will uphold you with My victorious right hand. Isaiah 41:10
He will keep in perfect peace all those who trust in Him, whose thoughts turn often to the Lord! Trust in the Lord always, for in the Lord, Jehovah, is your everlasting strength. Isaiah 26:3-4
What can we ever say to such wonderful things as these? If God is on our side, who can ever be against us? Since He did not spare even His own Son for us but gave Him up for us all, won't He also surely give us everything else? Romans 8:31-32
I am holding you by your right hand - I, the Lord your God - and I say to you, don't be afraid; I am here to help you. Despised though you are, fear not, Oh Israel; for I will help you. I am the Lord, your Redeemer; I am the Holy One of Israel. Isaiah 41:13-14
Trust the Lord completely; don't ever trust yourself. In everything you do, put God first, and He will direct you and crown your efforts with success. Proverbs 3:5-6
And we know that all that happens to us is working for our good if we love God and are fitting into His plans. Romans 8:28
We are saved by trusting. And trusting means looking forward to getting something we don't yet have - for a man who already has something doesn't need to hope and trust that he will get it. But if we must keep trusting God for something that hasn't happened yet, it teaches us to wait patiently and confidently. Romans 8:24-25
3. Describe 3 legitimate fears you have and explain how they became fears.
If you asked me this questions about a year ago I would have said:
1. The scream mask. Read 20 questions in previous post to understand.
2. Centipedes. When I was younger I was out hiking when I overheard someone say "If one bites you you'll die in 15 seconds so stay away!"
3. The ocean. You can't see anything clearly so who knows what's swimming near by.
Isn't it funny how God work out todays question with all my thoughts? I can honestly say that I'm really not afraid of those things anymore. I'm not trying to give you the Sunday School answer, but I could not think of anything that I'm afraid of. Not because I'm incredibly brave, because I'm not in the slightest, but because I am trusting God, I have faith, so I have nothing to fear!
