Fears

I've been thinking about fear lately. My fear leads me to worry. I heard this quote from Bible teacher Beth Moore:

Fear is an emotional outburst of unbelief.

OUCH! That one hurt. Have my fears and worries really been me not believing God could handle my lifequake? I don't want to think so, but I wonder if that's true.

When I worry, I'm projecting the negative on the future. I question "What if ........" and imagine the worst. When I exercise belief I'm projecting the positive on the future -- believing God will indeed work ALL things together for good. If I truly believe that, is there room for worry?

Seems I have a choice: fear and worry OR belief. I'm tired of being fearful; I'm tired of worry. I'm ready to believe in the One who knows how my lifequake will end.

I'm ready to believe God!
