Day 16

The Lord is my light and my salvation.

       Should I fear anyone?

   The Lord is a fortress protecting my life.

       Should I be frightened of anything?  

Psalm 27:1 CEB

Our fear can really trip us up.  When we are afraid, our brain gets hijacked.  Our power to reason and discern decreases dramatically.  Sticks in the river look like snakes; danger lurks in every corner; monsters sleep under our bed and keep us awake at night.

One comfort I have in all this is found in the scriptures.

The Lord is our light and salvation.

The Lord is a fortress protecting my life.

This is an amazing bigger picture reality than what is happening on this particular date during this decade at this time in history.

This comforts me.  How about you?
