While all things in this world are passing, our souls are in the arms of Eternal Love.

Psalm 34:5

I sought the LORD, and he answered me, delivered me from all my fears.

It’s so hard to believe that there is nothing to fear.

But what about the current pandemic?

What about the uncertainty?

What about…(fill in the blank)?

Remember when the apostles were on a boat during a storm and Jesus was sleeping peacefully, they woke him in fear.

That’s when Jesus said, “Why are you terrified? Do you not yet have faith? (Mark 4:40)”

When you get down to it, the real fear is death.

We know that we don’t have control over when our lives will end.

But we have faith that when that happens – it will not be the end!

We know this by the resurrection.

I have also been comforted by the stories of the people known as “Near Death Experiencers”.

Thousands and thousands of people across the planet have had the experience of suffering cardiac arrest and then leaving their bodies with ease, and most have reported encountering a Light of Love that is beyond any love they have ever come close to experiencing.

Do you believe that?

Because if we did believe it…then fear would dissolve.

As scripture states: “There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love” (1 John 4:18).

Remember: “God is love” (1 John 4:8).

So let go of any fear.

Let go of the scary narrative your mind is composing!

As soon as your mind starts telling you a scary story…catch those thoughts and simply press delete!

Rest in the present moment and find that your soul is being held in the perfect Love that sustains all things.
