Fearless? But How?

My weekly small group of dear women met today, a bit smaller than usual but we shared sweet conversation around candlelight and warm laughter, despite the rainy afternoon. We've challenged each other with "assignments" to do something creative around specific words. Our first project was based on the word "soar." Carole created a quilted bird ornament, with various symbols integrated to represent how we soar in the Spirit. Barb did a graphic representation, another had a set of scripture verses that included the word "soar."

Today's word was "Fearless." Here's an acronym based on scriptures beginning with each letter. Scriptures that dispel fear:

F = Faith is the substance of things hoped for the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

E = Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17

A = All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness... 2 Tim. 3:16

R = Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Phil. 4:4

L = Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. Deut. 6:5

E = Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the LORD is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations. Psalm 100:4-5

S = Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. Isaiah 55:6

S = Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Psalm 105:2
