” Be gracious to me, O God, for men trample upon me; my enemies trample upon me; all day long foemen oppress me; my enemies trample upon me all day long, for many fight against me proudly. When I am afraid, I put my trust in thee. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust without a fear. What can flesh do to me?
All day long they seek to injure my cause; all their thoughts are against me for evil. They band themselves together, they lurk, they watch my steps.”
Fear has been consuming me these last few months. I have been struggling with making a decision based on the hold fear had over me. I was just reminded by a wise Priest that life is full of risks. Trust God, and have faith. With that being said, I let go of the fear that was paralyzing me, and made a decision in faith. I could feel an instant weight being released from me after I let go and trusted God.
I pray for all those people that are bound up in fear. I pray for strength and courage for them. Jesus, you know what is best for us and we trust in you. Amen.
