Only Believe

“Do not be afraid; only believe.” Mark 3:36

Jesus always knows best. For truly, life was at it’s scariest when I didn’t believe.

Thank You, Lord, for helping me minimize my fears by maximizing You in my life. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Fear Less

Fear tries to creep in
telling me to give in
after all it’s logical
to be afraid.

Fear says I’m faking
at being brave, making
a false smile
be my charade.

But You are inside me
and soon You remind me
You are all
that I need.

So I can believe
and simply receive
Your power to make
my fears flee.


  1. Fear: Knock, knock
    Jesus: Who’s there?
    Fear: Fear
    Jesus: Fear who?
    Fear: This a fear!

  2. Deb, This was wonderful! It reminded me of a saying I heard many years ago. “Fear knocked at the door. Faith answered and there was nobody there.” I used to be so afraid of so many things before I knew Jesus. Fear and worry go hand in hand, and would love to drag us down with them. But Jesus will make our fears flee! 🙂 Peace, Linda

  3. Knock knock
    who’s there?
    Rea who?
    Rea sunshine! That’s you! 🙂

  4. I really like that saying, and the “false evidence appearing real” one. 🙂 Now, to just believe. Jesus makes it simple, but somehow we complicate things! Thank you for always sharing Him and adding to our peace!

  5. Your posts are such an encouragement to me.


  6. You are such an encouragement to us as well! I love how you delve into His word and share it in such an understanding and comforting way! Wishing you and yours a beautiful Christmas!

  7. Coming from a substance abuse past and manic depressive present, I have a special relationship with Jesus. He’s like my big brother, and the Holy Spirit a beloved aunt. I used to pray that my illness would simply go away, but the auntie said, “There are other ways.” And Jesus coached the Serenity Prayer and showed me the things I could change. So my faith self=started me toward recovery. I thank God for every day on this earth, truly.

    The knock-knock jokes cracked me up, by the way!

    Your friend, Amy BL

  8. I was just reading a post today about misconceptions among believers concerning those with depression and mental disorders. ( it’s at ) I love how Jesus loves you and is working out your conditions in ways that only you and He know at times. It takes a special faith that understands when we aren’t just “healed” the way we had in mind. I prayed for my daughter to be healed and felt that He told me she is, and that others around her would need to be healed. It has been a great revelation. You are an amazing woman of faith, Amy. I’m so blessed that you came by!

  9. The enemy tries to get us many different ways. I think fear and self-doubt are some of the main weapons used. Anything to create separation between us and God. But we know, He is always with us. Thank you for your words.

  10. So thankful that He is with us always and gives us His peace! I need it all the time!!! Thank you for the gift of your faith, that strengthens and blesses us all!
