Hold Tight to Hope You are my strong refuge. Let my mouth be filled with Your praise and with Your glory all the day. (Psalm 71:7-8) Fear is an emotion we've all encountered. It's wondering what might happen. It's knowing things are out of our hands. It's losing control. It's experiencing the worst. It's having the jitters. It's losing our appetite. Queasiness. Sweating palms. Jangling nerves. Furrowed brow. Trembling hands. Pounding heart. Shortness of breath. Butterflies in the stomach. When we worry, anxiety, fretting, and fear overwhelm our hearts and minds, we tend to forget everything else. But God wants us to remember one very important thing---HIM. When fears press in around you, cling to God. Hang onto His promises for you. Hold tight to hope. Trust God with your very life, and your faith will drive out the fears.
