Every day, our world changes. The news tends to report on bad news. If we allow ourselves to focus on such things, then our hearts will be heavy with fear.
There is good news. We don't have to allow fear to take control. We can overcome fear by seeking God. If you feel that you've had a heavy heart, then turn your eyes toward the Cross of Christ. For in the Cross, you will find hope, you will find joy, you will find peace. Read and allow these scriptures to get into your mind and in your spirit.
