Yesterday I got in my car to drive somewhere I really didn’t want to go. As soon as I turned up K-Love this song started playing that I had never heard. They never said the name of the song but I was sure I would remember enough to figure it out.

I didn’t. But I really needed to hear it again. It spoke about getting rid of fear and the place I was driving could easily lead me down a path of fear.

The song I didn’t know was quickly followed by “Whom Shall I Fear.” Which I know well. I sang along loud and proud.

But when I got home I wanted to hear the first song. Thank goodness for Google. I remembered partial lyrics and I got it!

It’s called “The Breakup Song” by Francesca Battistelli. Love it!

Eventually I will share where I was driving and why these songs where so important. But I don’t have all the answers yet. When I do have a complete story I will share.

In the meantime, how is your fear level? Is there something you are fearing? Do you struggle with fear regularly?

Listen to this song.

Then if you still need some more reminders I will link some other great songs to strengthen you. Remember God has this. We are His.

The Breakup Song

Whom Shall I Fear

No Longer Slaves

Fear Is A Liar If you have never watched this video do it, have a tissue with you. Wow.

About: 

Identify the root of your fear and anxiety and receive both spiritual and practical direction for change. Dr. Carol Peters-Tanksley understands that Christians are not immune to stress or to the fear and anxiety many experience as a result. As a practicing ob-gyn with more than twenty years’ experience, and as an ordained Christian minister, she understands how to properly address stress from a spiritual perspective.

Dr. Carol helps you experience improved psychological well-being through:
• Understanding specific spiritual and psychological truths
• Employing successful spiritual warfare practices
You will be empowered to decrease psychological distress and begin a new life free from the weight of fear and anxiety.

My thoughts:

I struggle a bit with fear (my husband would probably say I struggle with fear a lot) and I never thought too much with anxiety but I can see as I am getting older there might be more things I am anxious about.

This book is really geared toward those people who deal with high anxiety, I feel, probably people who have been diagnosed with anxiety.

This book is very scientific. If you connect with that type of book then this is the book for you. I do not connect with overly scientific things and had a lot of trouble engaging with this book.

Grab your copy at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Christianbook.com or your favorite retailer.
