"There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear."

– I John 4:17

Fear and anxiety have a way of taking up all the space in the room. Literally, fear weakens our immune system, can cause GI problems, accelerated aging, and even premature death. So too in the spiritual life, fear and anxiety can obscure the deeper ebb and flow of our walk with God. Yet the one thing fear cannot abide is the conscious exposure to the love of God. “In order for the deepest things in us to be touched and kindled, both fear and anxiety must be wiped away,” wrote Howard Thurman.
