Fear is crippling , particularly the fear of death. When this fear takes hold of us we need to look to the one who brings peace. The prince of peace himself , Jesus. The one who never leaves us or forsakes us. The one who is ALWAYS at hand. Think about it. There really is nothing to fear given that the Son of God walks with us. So as we all walk through the valley of the shadow of death the shepherd of our souls leads us. Take comfort in that today .
