Fear is something I am all too familiar with and I know I am far from alone.
Sunday the sermon discussed fear and it got me thinking. What is the opposite of fear?
We are often quick to declare bravery! Courage! Confidence!
What about peace?
What if the opposite of fear is peace? Not facing everything boldly, or standing firm against the onslaught of worry, but knowing peace?
I find something wonderful in that thought, and it definitely is a lot quieter since I realized this.
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid." - John 14:27 (ESV)
