Fear Not, For I Am With You

Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

Okay, so I kinda went from the Bible to Star Wars there, but you get the point.

There really isn't much that I am afraid of.

Snakes? Well yes, they terrify me and give me nightmares.
Spiders? Yeah, I'll scream like a little girl and go running across the room.
Heights over water? I can't breathe.

But are those really FEARS? Or just silly phobias that I can't handle?

I think the only real FEAR that I have would be, God forbid, losing my husband or one of my children. I can't even bare the thought.

But seriously, everything else, I know that I can overcome, that it will be over soon, that I am strong.

This post was inspired by:


  1. Yep and in the Bible there are 365 Fear Nots,,, God does not want us fearful!

  2. Its so easy for those fears to get in the way! Can't live in fear!

  3. When I start fearing to do something--I simply repeat to myself-She Came She Saw She Conquered-of course this does NOT apply to snakes--if I see one of them--I suddenly realize how fast I can run!!

  4. Thank you I needed that verse this morning. I know that came from The Lord for me to read. Thank you for posting.

  5. Love the relationship between the Bible and Yoda. Wise words these are. :)

  6. I love that you featured Yoda. My guys loves Star Wars! I verse you selected is perfect.

  7. I'm terribly afraid of spiders too. Snakes are all right but spiders, eek!

  8. Love that Yoda was mentioned in this. Do you know that was my nickname in college- don't even ask-lol!

  9. I am terrified of scorpions! O.O When I was little, I use to have nightmares about scorpions jumping on me in my sleep.

  10. I have some fears, but I do my best to overcome them.
