I started 2020 with a fear which carried over from the previous year. This fear had to do with my heart health.
Just a couple months into 2020, though, this fear was replaced by a new fear: Covid-19. The pandemic brought with it not only fear for the health of myself and those I know and love, but also the financial fears which come with job loss.
Then, two weeks ago, I had a new fear come and replace the Covid one – Melanoma. This diagnosis brought a fear of pain, a fear of medical bills, and a fear of what may come next.
But let me share with you the biggest lesson I have learned in 2020:
There will always be something in this world to fear.
Let me share with you another truth:
God is greater than any fear or any cause of the fear. He is in us and with Him we are more than conquerors!
So, exhale, release these thoughts and emotions and remember His words:
4 My children, you have come from God and have conquered these spirits because the One who lives within you is greater than the one in this world. 1 John 4:4
