Good Twists and Bad Turns

This is just how life is- no one gets out of this world without twists and turns.  We can all attest that many good twists and bad turns have occurred in our life stories.  Some twists are so good that we can jump for joy, but some turns seem to generate tremendous disappointment, hurt, and sorrow.

I have been thinking lately about fear.  It seems to be all around- everywhere I look, I see it, and even at times it rises, in me.  And seeing all this fearfulness makes me sad.  Sad because I know it isn’t the way our heavenly father wanted this world to be.  In 2 Timothy 1:7, Paul writes these important words to Timothy, For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
