Good News Thursday!!!

To listen to this weeks song for meditation, Click on Total Praise by Fred Hammond

Terror, Fright, Horror, Alarm, Nervousness, Unease, and the list goes on and on.

These are all words that describe FEAR!

Fear: An unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat.

I wrote about my experience with fear awhile back, and I’ve come to realize that fear is a journey.

Even after you decide to face it, you become overtly aware that fear has a lot tricks up its sleeve.

Do Not Be Afraid?

Happy Thursday!!!

Last summer God directed me to send the Surrender Fast devotional to people of influence. I generated a list and got to mailing. This is not typically my style, I like people to find me, but if God was asking me to do it He must have a plan!

The first few thanks-for-the-book, I-hope God-blesses-you notes were tolerable, but after 10+ rejection letters it was all getting to be a bit much and last Sunday it culminated in me having one big pity-party:
