Fear is Gone: A Personal Victory that can also be Yours

I’m soon taking an overseas trip, without another human traveling with me, and I’m so completely unafraid because the Lord is with me.

But I realize that the courage that I have today is dependent upon my relationship with Him, and that it didn’t come without personal warfare, overcoming a traumatic past, and deciding to trust God.

It didn’t come without a walk with God, one in which there was personal suffering and triumph. The courage that I have is because He lives. It’s not due to sheer human effort, to will power, or to mind over matter.

I realize that when the sea is stormy around me–if I look at the waves, I will sink. I am human. But I also know that if I begin to sink, Jesus will reach out His hand to me.

Have faith in God.
Don’t be afraid.
Take courage.

 

Blessings of peace to you,

Pamela Koefoed
