Fear, it can destroy and devastate.
Fear, it can paralyze.
Fear, it can wound and harm.
Fear, it can pull you into darkness.
The fear though, it does not have to have power because there is love.
Because perfect love casts out fear.
Love, it frees you.
Love, it breathes new life.
Love, it spurs you into action.
Love, it heals and it strengthens.
Love, it is a beacon of light and hope.
And the best part of it all?
It is His love for us.
His perfect, unending, all encompassing love for you and me can drive out the fear.
And He does love us. Loves us so deeply and so completely. There is nothing at all that can cause Him to stop loving us, absolutely nothing.
