I don’t have a lot to say this morning. Most everything has been said. I am not a medical professional, but I have concerns that some are not taking COVIC-19 seriously enough, and that others are in pure panic mode (That sound like a cool band name – “Our musical guest tonight on The Extremely Late Show . . . Pure Panic Mode!”)
Early Christians faced a difficult life. Many of their families disowned them. Some lost jobs or could not trade because of their faith. Others faced persecution that could and often did lead to their death. Knowing such was happening and would happen the Holy Spirit through Simon Peter offers these words of comfort, “Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time may exalt you, casting all your anxieties (fears, cares – BSMc) on him, because he cares for you.” 1Pe 5:6-7
I leave you with a Bonus video:

Well, gotta say, I enjoyed your lesson, but was somewhat taken aback at the very beginning of the song UNTIL I listened carefully to the word FEAR. I 100% know that fear does not own me. My Bible tells me over and over again that I don’t have to fear anything. I can and will continue to not let fear rule my life. Need your prayers because in two weeks, I will be speaking at a ladies day about this very subject. I want all women everywhere who is a Christian to know that God is with us and we will conquer our struggles because He tell us this very thing. Thanks and you and Amy stay healthy.
The songwriter intentionally wrote the song as if she was braking up with fear like one would a boyfriend. It pulls you into the story and the way we hold on to our fear, almost like a co-dependent relationship.
Thanks for reading and for your comments.
