Afraid Of?

When I am afraid I will put my trust in You. - Psalm 56:3

     We are all afraid of something but they can be all sorts of different things.  We also vary in what we trust in to ease our fears.  Is it ourselves or the Lord?  Does what others fear seem silly to you?  It doesn't matter, the fear is real to them.
     It seems silly now but in school, I was anxious and fearful of fire drills.  They were sudden, spontaneous to me, and led me to unfamiliar ground.  I like routine and fire drills just shook mine up.  The different walking routes caused me to fear the stairs I usually avoided and the threat of falling was always on my mind.  Did anything ever happen to me?  No and even if it had wouldn't my pride be the most likely thing hurt?
    Our enemy, worry, is most often found between our ears.  Psalm 56;3 in the caption above tells us Who to put our trust in.  Scripture verses help us to ease our thoughts and remind us not to be afraid.
   Don't just go through life, grow through life.  The more often we put our trust in His hands, the easier it is to do in both the simple and big challenges of life.
