Friday, May 30, 2014Brave in the Face of Fear Host(s): Lynne Ford
Listen Now Number of listens: 0 Download File Number of downloads: 0

Fear. It is everywhere in your life. Fear of the future, kids, marriage, finances, health, relationships...you name it. But most of those fears are rooted in lies. Lies that tell us God doesn't care, can't or won't act on our behalf, or is holding out on us in some way. It feels safer to fear than to live trusting God. Brenda Garrison knows this firsthand and she offers God's Words of truth to us during this hour. You are known and loved by God and it is possible to live fully as the person God made you to be...brave in the face of fear.
