Fear? No, Love.

September 25, 2010 Donna New

On the last day I want to see the hand of God peal the blue sky back as a scroll. I want to watch the stars fall to the earth. For one thing I love weather and lightening and hurricanes. They’re beautiful. For another the hand of God is the hand that healed the leper and the demon-possessed woman. It will be a hand of power and revenge on that Day but nevertheless, my Father’s hand.

The occurrence that I fear is the destruction of those left behind. That saddens me and sometimes I tremble for them. There are certain things in this life I fear. The end of the world is not one of them for me.

I was wondering if I was a little weird in this way and then I read the verse 1 John 4:18. “There is no fear in love, instead perfect love drives out fear…” I am loved. I am safe.  On that day I have no worries. Now to transfer that bravery to my little everyday fears. Lord, remind me, I am loved. I am safe…no matter what happens, every day, all day.
