As I sit here and think of the tragedy that has happened in the past couple of days, I cannot help but know that the enemy of our souls is at work. We see it where the 49 people lost their lives at a club while many, many others were injured because of hate.  We know this is not love, our God tells us to love one another.  Then we see it with this precious family on vacation, to Walt Disney World, one of the happiest, most magical places in the world and they lose their 2 year old son who was snatched by an alligator.  None of these people expected their days to go the way they did.  We have compassion for these that lost precious loved ones and perhaps hold and love on ours a little more.

While fear and anxiety are very real, we cannot let it rule our lives.  We cannot make ourselves stay in our homes afraid of what “may” happen.  I know with this pregnancy, the enemy is trying to cause fear more than with the others and I have learned some things I just need to not read or listen to.  I want to love more, serve more and share the love of Jesus more.  We are told in 2 Timothy 1:7, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” and in 1 John 4:18 we read that perfect love drives out fear.

While we need to be cautious of  what is around us, we can know that we are not alone and we do not have to be afraid.  We can live happy, victorious lives because of the hope we have in Jesus!
