Not all that scary

But God released him from the horrors of death and raised him back to life, for death could not keep him in its grip.  Acts 2:24

Life can get scary. The monster problems shrink, the fears and memories that haunt our dreams dissipate, even the reaper is less grim in the light of the resurrected Christ. “Fear not!” is both His battle cry and His lullaby to us. Jesus conquered death, hell, and the grave; nothing we might face is going to scare Him. We don’t have to let fear distort our perceptions or sideline us from our goals. He is for us, with us, and in us, our hope and peace.

Lord, Your encouragement and comfort are enough to help me overcome my fears and keep moving forward.
