Sitting Down Without Fear

I learned from the Bible to trust in God and not be afraid. I have always felt comforted by reading the Psalms, specially Psalms 23 and 27. I learned to put my trust in God and to seek him as my strength. Long ago I set my mind to be a free person and not to give in to fear. I always felt that it was my right to defend myself if I could. I have learned over the years that when one's mind is made up, this diminishes fear; knowing what must be done does away with fear. When people done things that hurts me, i was thinking to fight for my right. I had made up my mind quickly about what it was that I had to do, what I felt was right to do. I did not think of being physically tired or fearful. After so many months of oppression, not giving up my seat-and whatever I had to face after not giving up-was not important. I did not feel any fear at sitting in the seat I was sitting in. All I felt was tired. Tired of seeing the bad treatment and disrespect of people. I felt the lord would give the straight to endure whatever I had to face. God did away with all my fear. It was time for some one to stand up and fight for what is right. If I don't defend my self, who else will defend me? No one else but God.

I love the book of Psalms as well. God's always got your back. Keep your chin up and remember that no one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
