{ HOPE vs. fear }

As I dig deeper and deeper into this Armor of God Study by Ms. Priscilla Shirer, I'm gleaning more and more of just how much God loves us and also realizing that we have so much more power than we can comprehend, all because of God's saving GRACE.  He doesn't JUST save us from hell when we accept by faith the salvation He offers.  He saves us daily from ourselves......
from thoughts and emotions and depression and fears and guilt (much different from repentance). 

 It's truly been an eye-opener for me in so many areas of my life.

A friend sent me the picture of these necklaces on Facebook yesterday morning.......

Than, as I scrolled through the page of a lady I go to church with searching for an update on her husband's cancer results, low and behold, look what I saw......

Coincidence?
I think not!
God knows me.....
He knew I needed yet another reminder that the HOPE He offers is so very much stronger than any fears I have.  Only through HIM, is there a way to overcome!!!

Praise His Name!

Thank you, Lord!
