Be thankful for fear…

Joel Ybarra, LCMFT:

Notice what God doesn’t say. He doesn’t say, “there is nothing to be afraid of.” Rather, he says “Do not be afraid.”…

You can be thankful for the fear, though, in the same way that you can be thankful for your sin. It is your sin which will lead you to grace. And it is fear which will ultimately lead you to the Source of security and peace, if you allow it to do so.
