Be Not Afraid

Be not afraid. That seemed to be the recurring message this season of Advent. All the familiar Christmas stories sounded different. I kept hearing “Angela, Be. Not. Afraid.”
It’s all over the place in the Bible. Some of my favorites..
Isaiah 41:10, Isaiah 12:2, Luke 2:10, Luke 12:32, Exodus 14:13-14
Be not afraid
…The Lord is with you
…The Lord will fight for you
…Trust in God’s strength
Be not afraid
…of what people think of you
…of making mistakes
…of disappointing your friends
…of being imperfect
Be loved. Beloved. Beloved child of God
Be not afraid.
