Every now and then, God allows me the opportunity to be completely surrounded by His creation. In these moments, He renews me, reminds me of who He is, who I am, and how much He loves me.
In these moments, the distractions and worries of this life fade away and His presence is all that I feel.
And then there’s today.
Okay, I know I’m only one person so the panic can’t really be widespread, but that overwhelming sensation did come over me and try to frighten me into submission.
That’s when Jesus reminds me that He has not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.
And once again, in the midst of the chaos, He renews me once again.
