With A Little Love We Overcome
"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love." 1 John 4:18
People shape their perceptions by their experiences with a mix of their temperament/personality type added in. Sometimes a difficult experience can leave an unguarded area wide open to fear. Simple example, your in a severe car accident and once you are back in the road you are extremely aware of the possibility of another accident. Your home is robbed and you heighten security out of fear of repeat offense. You go through a divorce and fear to remarry because you don't want to be hurt again. You were rejected in childhood and now live with insecure thoughts that everyone is rejecting you.
God is more concerned about your outcome than your come from! Ask Him to cleanse your filter (perceptions)so you can move toward your future free from your fears, pains and experiences of the past. Just because something bad happened to you in the past, doesn't mean that same thing is going to happen to you now. I am learning that the more people have travelled through, the more love they need in order to get through. There is nothing to fear, God has no shortage of Love. ~Nicole
