Anxiety. Grateful for all 15 steps, I breathed deep, “Where is this coming from?” Halfway up, “I’m alone. Usually I’m with Terrell or joined at the hip with a baby.”
Driving home later I prayed, “God, I don’t ever want to feel like that again. …It’s another layer, isn’t it – my sources of worth.”
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” (1 John 4.18a)
Perfect Love casts out fear.
God is Perfect Love.
God casts out fear.
He exposes it – and waits for us to invite, welcome, and know Perfect Love.
When we know we’re perfectly loved, we know we’re accepted, valuable, and the One Who loves us is ALWAYS working on our behalf.
Jesus wants to be our source of worth, for how we see ourselves. His bride, adorned in His love and grace. Secure.
Jesus, lead us to respond to Your love by loving You MOST. Amen.
