An angel suddenly appears and the words are always the same "Fear not." I'm not sure that is always the easiest thing to do. For the past two years I have been underemployed - working at a much lower rate of pay then I need to survive. I will save for weeks at a time and then blow everything by eating our in restaurants. I am often behind with my bills. Next week my mom and sister are coming for a visit and so naturally I want to have a bit of money to spend, but my pockets are empty. Actually tomorrow is payday but I will need that money to pay my rent a week later and I have only $100 right now, so my paycheck will not be enough to cover rent. Then of course there is the little matter of eating for the next two weeks. Right now I need about $500 that I do not have! (WOW! I Really got behind this time)! Here is the thing, though: while I should be scared to death, I'm not. The angel didn't even have to say fear not.
Now I certainly see homelessness and I would not fare too well if I ended up out on the street, but I trust in God. Is it silly for me to be so trusting? Should I be scared? I believe that things will turn out well for me. I pray that I am right.
Do any of you have fears? If someone said "Fear not," would that help?
