SCRIPTURAL FOUNDATION FOR PART #5: AGING, ILLNESS, DYING, AND FEAR OF THE LORD
Don’t be anxious about anything; rather, bring up all of your requests to God in your prayers and petitions, along with giving thanks. Then the peace of God that exceeds all understanding will keep your hearts and minds safe in Christ Jesus.
(Philippians 4:6-7)

REMEMBER TO:
Face your fears with faith.
Examine your assumptions in light of the facts.
Attack your anxieties with action.
Release your cares to God.

ZOOM CALL INFO FOR TOMORROW MORNING & SCRIPTURAL FOUNDATION FOR PART #4
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. . . . Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! And do not keep striving for what you are to eat and what you are to drink, and do not keep worrying. For it is the nations of the world that strive after all these things, and your Father knows that you need them. Instead, strive for his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.”
(Luke 12:22-23, 27-31 NRSV)

Scriptural Foundation for Part #3 of Unafraid:

You hem me in, behind and before,
and lay your hand upon me. . . .
Where can I go from your spirit?
Or where can I flee from your presence?
If I ascend to heaven, you are there;
if I make my bed in Sheol, you are there.
If I take the wings of the morning
and settle at the farthest limits of the sea,
even there your hand shall lead me,
and your right hand shall hold me fast.
(Psalm 139:5, 7-10 NRSV)

ACRONYM FOR FEAR

Unafraid – Session 1: Understanding and Countering Fear

April 29, 2020

Note: Fear and stress have physical manifestations that we can feel when we are aware.

Ask yourself: Where do I hold my fear?

For Everyone (Exercise and Prayer):
Try this exercise, keep the computer in front of you as you do this, so that you can follow along. It’s okay to peek at the instructions as you go through them:

•Place both feet on the floor and sit upright with your hands resting loosely on your thighs.
•Close your eyes and sense where there is tension in your body. It may be in your shoulders, neck, chest, or elsewhere.
•Visualize that tension as a brightly colored web of energy.
•Try to relax the part of your body that is holding the tension. As you do, imagine the colored energy moving to the palms of your hands.
•Make a fist with your hands and hold the energy tightly for a few seconds.
•Now open your hands, palms upward, and release that energy to God as you pray.

Prayer:
God who calms the troubled waters, we bless you for your presence in the midst of our fears and trials. We release to you the things we hold too tightly, and we trust your words of peace. Be among us in this session, and may our souls and bodies be secure in you. Amen.
