If you are a child of God that feels discouraged and afraid today, please know that you are surrounded by so much love.
Before the beginning of time, God held us in His heart. He protects us from the arrows that fly by night. The waters will not overtake us and we will not be burned in the fire. He takes care of the sparrow, He will take care of us.
I hope this turns your discouragement into encouragement as you rest in Him.

1 John 4:18 – Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced His perfect love.
