not once, not twice, but three hundred sixty five times the bible says fear not
but he says it again and again, giving me chance after chance

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. ” Proverbs 3:5-8
wise in my own ways.....i'm sure it must be a funny site for God....to watch me worry away at the things (all things) He is already controlling
but i dwell, i roll them around in my pea brain, i make them big when they are small.....mostly about my children and their well being, but other things too...money, natural disasters, death, life....
but He says......FEAR NOT
