Fear and I are well acquainted. She's a snarly, bossy thing, always trying to control my actions and thoughts and feelings. When Jesus gave me five remarkable words in the midst of a dream last August, I woke up and thought, "No. Impossible. Fear is so entangled with who I am -- I couldn't possibly live without it." But Jesus has taught me (over and over and over again) that the year of no fear is possible indeed. And not only is it possible -- it doesn't simply cease after one year. It's possible for the entirety of my life.
How much more free I am when I live brave.
The year of no fear? Yes. The life of no fear? Indeed.
Fear, you ain't the boss of me.
