I was sitting having a nice cup of coffee yesterday when I saw a wee mouse run across the kitchen and under the fridge. I let out a blood curdling scream and scared the living daylights out of my poor husband! He was in the middle of something important ….. but he graciously got up and tried to find the culprit. I ….. in the meantime was sitting with my feet underneath me on the chair ….. and I wasn’t going anywhere! I did at least tell him which direction the mouse ran in. Of course the mouse won! Hubby told me it must have gone outside ….. but I’ve heard that one before! I needed evidence! After a while I decided to be a big girl and got on with some housework ….. telling myself ‘the mouse is more scared of you than you are of him!’ Fear is irrational! It grips you and makes you powerless. When I rethought the situation ….. (in other words ….. when I repented) ….. my mind became clear.
‘For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.’ 2 Tim 1:7
