Choosing Trust Over Fear

I rarely have a Bible verse stuck in my head. I wish it happened more often. Today, Psalm 112:6-7 has been on repeat in my mind:

Psalm 112:6-7

The righteous person is not afraid of bad news, but rather firmly trusts in the Lord. My tendency is to choose fear, not trust. 

If I receive bad news, God is good and worthy of trust. Disappointing test results and scheduling delays fall into this category.

If I receive good news that feels like bad news, God is good and worthy of trust. This category can include pregnancy announcements and test results that come back normal and lead nowhere.

If I am afraid of receiving bad news, I need to remind myself that God is good and worthy of trust. And I need to memorize more verses so they get stuck in my head more often.

Are you with me?
