Everywhere I’ve turned for days I hear the Lord saying, “you have to do this. ”

Each time I respond. “But Lord, what if this happens again? It will break my heart. I can’t.”

Then my pastor prayed yesterday, on his face on the altar, (and I’m paraphrasing and reporting what God whispered to my soul) ‘remove the fear and be vulnerable. Trust me with your heart.’


The thought of this step makes me nauseated, like spinning and gonna vomit while I am falling to the ground out of control.

The need to control every situation keeps me in captivity. Fear has taken a grip on me and formed a bearer around my heart that won’t allow me to be free – not letting anyone in.

I can’t help but believe I am not the only one with this struggle.

Deuteronomy 31:8 has been a help to me. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you;  he will never leave you nor forsake you; Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”

I would love to know a scripture that has been pivotal in helping you deal with fear.
