We have been rescued from our enemies so we can serve God without fear . . . Luke 1:74
We do not need to fear. So hard to really commit to this. To understand this. To realize the truth of this. Fear surrounds us. We worry about our families, the instabilities in the world, the noise of the negative, secret fears which we keep deep and no one hears . . .
Why is it this morning that it felt like I was putting on war paint when I was applying powder upon my cheeks. Healthcare is hard. We face hurting stakeholders, tough surveys, an angry family member, and our beloved residents, who are sick and suffering and in need of so much.
The need around us drips like moss on a weeping willow.
So if we need not fear, why are we so good at it? Today, at this moment, right now, we say NO to fear and we claim God within us, hearing our deep secrets of worry, lost hopes, the impossibles that can’t get done or resolved. We get to step out in fearlessness in this healthcare world and not fear the swirl of the wild twirling around us, and know He is there, guiding, directing, taking care.
We are warriors. And we can be. We can be fierce, and loving. Stand up, with His sword in hand. Be bold. Like a Moses, a Joshua, an Elijah. Activate the warrior, for God is with you; He is in you; and we do NOT fear.
May you all be kept safe. 1 Thessalonians 5:23
