We have nothing to fear, God is with us.

"31What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? 33Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. 34Who is he that condemns? Christ Jesus, who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. 35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? 36As it is written:
"For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." 37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord".(Romans 8:31-39)

If God is at the center of our lives, we have nothing to fear from the outside world. We must know in our hearts that God is always with us and that God loves us unconditionally. However, we need to have faith in God's love in order to move forward on our Christian walk. We must be able to moment by moment surrender our wills and our lives to God and love one another as He loves us. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are reminded that we are deeply loved and totally accepted in that love and that we will never be left alone or abandoned. Jesus tells us that we are significant. Love was the main message of Jesus. He loves us unconditionally, just as we are, with no strings attached to that love. God’s love is personal. He knows each of us personally and calls us to join in friendship with him personally. God never gives up on us or abandons us, but continually calls us to a loving relationship with Him.
If we recognize that God is always with us, we have no need to fear.

Peace and love,


"Be still and know that I am God"(Psalm 46:10)
