Fear is one of the most powerful emotions. It has a very strong effect on our mind and body. Being afraid of some things – like fires – can keep you safe. But fear and its companion anxiety, used when the fear is about something in the future, can be debilitating. Fear and anxiety can cause behavioural changes, such as fleeing, hiding, or freezing from perceived traumatic events.
Our world has been plunged into a crisis by a new virus that did not exist just a few short months ago. This invisible threat makes day to day life scary in so many ways. We fear that we may become infected by it and possibly die without our family near. Some of us have lost jobs and we are afraid for the future and some of us are afraid as we go through weeks of isolation alone in our homes.
While walking this earth with his followers, Jesus often told them to "fear not". On one occasion Jesus sent his disciples out to the surrounding towns and villages to share the news of God's Kingdom he reminded them of this truth:
God does not want us to live our lives in fear and anxiety. Hundreds of years earlier, through a prophet named Isaiah, He gave those who put their trust in Him four reasons not to fear.
Life can be scary, often very scary. However, believe it or not, there's a way to live without fear . . . even when there's something to be afraid of. Join us over the coming weeks as we discover together how this is possible.
