No Fear

The LORD is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27:1
***this link will take you where you can read OR LISTEN to this Psalm***

This was the verse of the day on the K-Love radio station. I think about this verse when I’m afraid to go into the basement where it’s dark (to many scary movies). But I really think about it when I have to explain my motivation for things to someone in the name of Jesus.

Office talk usually centers around current tv, movies, news, etc. I don’t watch a whole lot of tv and haven’t seen any recent movies because, well frankly they don’t help build me up as a Christian. I saw enough icky disturbing stuff before I got saved that I can just trudge up a scene from the move Seven if I want to be grossed out, or think about an episode of CSI if I want to be disturbed. I was really lost for a really long time, and I don’t need the confusion.

Some people think it’s ultra conservative or even fanatical to attempt to surround ones self exclusively with Christian music, books, and video. Occasionally I actually feel bad that I can’t wax poetic on the recent episode of Desperate Housewives or haven’t seen the movie where the guy is freaked out by a number or something. I guess this verse helps me not to be afraid of what people think of me and reminds me of Who is important.

Have a great week!

Look up the name for your fear on the Phobia List! Good thing I don’t know anyone with Vestiphobia!!!
