"Truly the thing that I fear comes upon me, and what I dread befalls me."
This is one of my favorite verses in all the Bible because it sets out so clearly the basic spiritual Truth that we create our own life experiences according to the choices we make. We are creative expressions of the one God. As Jesus said, "According to your faith be it done to you." If we choose to focus on things that frighten us, we are expressing a faith that those things will happen. And so they do. The answer to fear and dread is to focus on the good—appreciate the many ways in which your llife is unfolding beautifully. It can be hard sometimes, but it's always possible.
