I saw this pin on Pinterest, and I love it!  There have been MANY times in my life when worry and fear has wormed it’s way into my head.  I know Papa doesn’t want this for us.  He wants what is best for us.  He wants us to ensconce ourselves in His love, grace, and mercy, knowing that He is always there and that He is working everything for our good.  He does not want us to live in fear, but wants for us to cast our anxieties on Him and trust Him to take care of us (because He will!).

I’ve decided to dub today “Fearless Friday”, and in celebration of this day, I am going to post 20 of my favorite bible verses that I read and pray over again and again when I feel overwhelmed, stressed, or worried about anything.  Scripture is our biggest weapon against anxieties – take head of God’s promises.  Allow them to crush your fears, and replace that feeling of being overwhelmed with feeling His peace and love all around and within you.
