We talked about fear at Bible Study today. Dee said, "Fear stamps the living daylights out of faith!" Pastor Marylee said it was a good thing there wasn't a tattoo parlor next door, cause she'd be over there getting that tattoo. That had us all giggling. Eleanor shared her favorite scripture verse that she learned years ago, 2Timothy 1:7 For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgement. Dee was right. Fear takes our faith and trust in God away. You can't have faith and trust that God will take care of us and fear at the same time. They don't work together. I'm going to keep that 2Timothy verse close to my heart.
