There is only one sure cure for a life that is dominated by fear, and that is living faith in Jesus Christ. Fear and faith cannot co-exist in the same life. Faith nurtures faith and fear nurtures fear. Place your trust in God.
At first, in the little things in your life, His love and wisdom will be revealed and confirmed, and in time, the bigger things in your life will be under His control too.
He said to His disciples "Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?"
Grace for each Moment
I think fear is the number one reason that addicts hold onto the old way of life. Questions rattling around in one's head:: What is I just can't give it up? What is someone finds out I go to AA? Will my wife leave me if I reveal to her my addiction to pornography? It takes courage to finally take a stand and say "Enough insanity!" and to let it all go. But fear leaves our hands grasping that bottle or joint or whatever your addiction. But FAITH will release it. You don't have to have all the answers. But by faith He, our Jesus Christ, will begin to lead your life out of that pit. But ONLY if you let him.
