    What an amazing testimony – that something you heard on TV would be used to bring fear and anxiety into your life in the very week that Beth talked about the effects of TV on our ability to live Spirit filled lives! I am so sorry that you had to go through that, but praise God that He brought you to this study at this very moment when He knew you would need to know how to be set free. What a wonderful study this has been! Love ~ Patricia

    Half a wonder you’re scared with all that talk about the pandemic out there! But my friend’s grandma had a sign on her wall that said, “Don’t Worry, It May Never Happen.” Worry is a totally useless emotion when it involves something over which you have NO control. Every moment you stew about something that may never happen at all, is a moment wasted! I’m so happy that Beth talked about self-control. We all need to hear this. (They’re jabbering about a big hurricane hitting the North East this year. We’re statistically overdue–haven’t had a huge one since the 30s–but statistics lie.) Just remember the avian flu pandemic (or a meteor hitting the earth, or whatever) may NEVER happen! I love the last quote from Beth that you posted here. With all those positive thoughts, who would have room for the negative ones? As my mom used to say, “do the best you can, and leave the rest to God!”

    Awesome as always, Janice. I deleted that particular Oprah as soon as I saw the show summary on TiVo – or I wouldn’t have slept that night. FEAR – it’s definitely an area where my wall crumbles from time to time. I have enjoyed reading all of your LBY posts so much – and don’t you be a stranger, okay? :-) I’ll continue to visit you~

    Oh Janice! I feel for you. I too suffer from irrational fear, paranoia, horrible visions, etc. I will be praying for you always and as BooMama said, don’t be a stranger!

    Janice — what a great and transparent post!!!

    I know it’s easy for me to say this, but remember that God did not give us a spirit of fear and timidity!

    2 Timothy 1:7 – “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline”

    Wonderful post Janice. I too allow my fears and my worries to take over. I’ve learnt the HARD way though, that it’s not use to worry or live in fear.
    There’s things that are out of our control and whether we worry or not, will still happen or not happen.

    I needed this so badly this morning, I too live in fear at times of the what if’s, what if something happens to me, what if something happens to my kids or husband, what if there’s world war, what if, what if, what if. IT’s very debilitating at times because it freezes me in that moment of panic. This post has definitely helped a lot :)
    Huge hugs to you,
    Sandra

    Thank you for this post. It is very tough for moms sometimes to keep it all together. I was looking at various printing services just the other day and started feeling very overwhelmed, especially as my two toddlers starting vying for my attention. It helps to gain a little self control and just breathe at times!
