The other day on their Established Blog, Precept Ministries posted this great article about overcoming fear.
4 Principles for Overcoming Fear
Fear unleashes a host of doubts. It chips away at our confidence in God’s goodness. If Jesus can sleep in the storms of the Sea of Galilee, is he asleep in our storms? Does He care?
