legiit asked: I need help. I need help so much. I found your blog because I searched the "fear" tag and it came up. I'm a Christian too, and I'm so afraid. All the time. I need so much help. I know God says not to be anxious for anything and trust in Him and I do trust Him but that doesn't stop me from being fearful and worried. I've tried literally everything to stop being fearful every day and nothing is helping. I don't know what to do anymore, I'm sorry Ive ranted to you for so long. Please pray for me!<3
Yes, sweetheart, I will be praying for you! I am so sorry you are struggling with fear; a battle I know only too well. You are not alone in your struggles. I want you to know that! Many Christians have fear they are just not as brave as you to share their struggles.
I would suggest several things to help you.
First of all, share with Jesus your fears. Just pour out your heart to Him for He loves you dearly :) Pour out your heart when afraid and then stop to listen…you eventually will feel His comfort if you keep doing that.
A second thing that has really helped me is I parked for a long time in the gospels and learned how much the Lord loves us as I read the stories of how He met them and comforted them. Any of the gospels are good but the gospel of Luke is good at Christmas time.
A third thing is, I use Sarah Young’s devotional “Jesus Calling” which has helped me immensely. I am about to purchase a second devotional of hers:
She wrote this, I believe during a time of battling with cancer. Her devotional has helped multitudes!
So here are a few things you can start doing. Here is a message for you that will bless you, too! I have listened twice and it has had me in (good) tears….
I am also on facebook, sharing my struggles, hopes and victories, if you want to join me there. I would love to “see” you.
In His marvelous love, mercy and grace!
