About the author:
I've certainly made my share of excuses when it comes to stepping out, but each time I've chosen to step in faith I have been blessed and enriched. I know it pleases God to see people overcome their fears and answer His call. He has a plan and wants to include us all in accomplishing it!
Writing "Fearful To Fearless" is something that has been on my heart for more than ten years. Looking for something to pick up when you need to hear a short word from God in the area of fear and worry, I've actually been waiting for someone else to write it. I recall hearing that there were 365 "fear nots" in the bible, one for every day of the year, it was even mentioned in the movie "Facing the Giants" but I've never found anything written or assembled this way.
Fearful To Fearless represents about 15 months of research, study and preparation. A number of bible translations and commentaries were utilized in identifying the scripture passages relating to fear, worry and the fear of God. I prayed about what each passage had to say in order to uncover a concise biblical truth that put the passage in context for me. In the end almost 400 scripture references were identified.

Fearful To Fearless
biblical truths to inspire you to live a life free of fear and to worship God | Fear Not - Don't Worry - Fear God
Fearful To Fearless brings together almost 400 passages of scripture that demonstrate or direct us to not be afraid, to not worry or be anxious, to look to Christ for strength and comfort, and be transformed to have a worshipful fear and awe of God. Each passage is accompanied by a short biblical truth to help provide clarity and encouragement.
The account of Jesus calming the storm (Mark 4:35-41) is an impressive demonstration of Christ's power over nature and His ability to comfort us in the storm. It showcases our need to call on Him in prayer and place our trust and reliance on Him, it was the inspiration for writing Fearful To Fearless.
When the disciples cried out suggesting that He didn't care whether they perished or not, Christ showed His disappointment in their lack of faith. For Christ loves us all and wants for none to perish, but for all to have faith and go through the storm with Him. Each time we choose to trust Him in the storm the stronger our faith becomes.
But what we also see in this passage is the transformation from being afraid, to having the fear of God. The disciples just witnessed the power that He had over the sea and storm and realized the power that He had over them. They were now in awe, they marveled at what they just observed and were filled with the fear of God, a godly fear of the power and grace of Christ during the calm, a fear of the Lord and all His goodness, a reverent awe that was full of honor and glorifying to Christ.
