On Fear and Faith

He who fears something gives it power over him.
~Moorish Proverb


Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not.
Doctrine & Covenants 6:36

Perfect love casteth out fear
1 John 4:18


For God hath not given us the spirit of fear;
but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind
2 Timothy 1:7

"Brethren and sisters, we have nothing to fear if we stay on the Lord’s side. If we will look to the Lord in all our thoughts and deeds, we will have nothing to fear concerning our lives."
~Gordon B Hinckley "Fear Not to Do Good"

For we walk by faith, not by sight
2 Corinthians 5:7


What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do.
Psalm 56

The LORD is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalm 27

(this is a musical version of Psalm 27, and one of my favorites)

I love this. Thank-you. I struggle a lot with anxiety and this is always such a good reminder for me.
