Fear often grips us. We get stuck, in all kinds of ways. I LOVE being a Christian because Jesus took care of all the reasons I have fear. It is done!!! I am still human, it still sneaks in, and I still resort to Christ every time.
Easter is a perfect reminder of what God gave us through Jesus, EVERYTHING.
It is so easy to get caught up in our troubles that fear sneaks in. Then Easter comes along and is the perfect reminder… WHAT exactly do WE have to fear, NOTHING!!
So do not fear, for I am with you;~ Isaiah 41:10 (NIV)
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. God has come to test you, so that the fear of God will be with you to keep you from sinning.”~ Exodus 20:20 (NIV)
so that you, your children and their children after them may fearthe Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life.~Deuteronomy 6:2 (NIV)
Happy Easter. May all of you be abundantly blessed,
