He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord. His heart is steady; he will not be afraid... - Psalm 112:7-8
I was dealing with a lot of bad news last week, to the point where I was feeling afraid, confused and weak. Then I came across this verse and I realized that my heart was not being firm. I wanted to be strong, trusting in the Lord, but it was so difficult. But over the next few days, my church community really encouraged me, and I felt their prayers. God brought me healing, and when I prayed, He assured me that He is in control, so I no longer need to be afraid. Through the experience, I realized once again the importance of a faith family, and God's sovereignty. Thanks be to God!
