I am no longer a slave to fear, so why do I still afraid of what people think of me, afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing.
I am still afraid of the dark. My candle shines through the darkness. Do you still fear the monsters hiding in the closet?
“God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light for their actions were evil. All those who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear that their sins would be exposed. But those who do what is right come to the light so other can see that they are doing what God wants.” -John 3:19-21 (NLT)
Throw off your chains and come to the light. Your sins may be seen, but you won’t be in the dark. God’s light shines through ALL darkness.
we only need to worry about His thoughts about what we say and do.
“For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts are higher than your thoughts” -Isaiah 55:9 (NLT)
His approval is the only one we should be striving for, his love will ever fail us. his light breaks through our dark places. His love conquers all fear. his perfect love drowned my fears.
There is no fear in love,
“For perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment , and his shows that we have not experienced his perfect love.”- 1 John 4:18
