Afraid of Being Afraid?

I am tired of being afraid.
Afraid of everything. 
Afraid of love, life, risk, hope, hate, not being accepted, joy, tears, sorrow.
Seems that we live most of our lives afraid—sometimes afraid of nothing in particular, just a random gnawing at our lives.
Jesus says perfect loves drives out all fear. In Him there is no fear.
In 2 Timothy, a reminder.
“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Discomfort? Sure. I don’t  think Jesus ever promised that life was smooth sailing. Unfair? Definitely.  Frustrating and all those other words? Sure.
But not fear.
We know how the story ends.
 Hallelujah, Lord Jesus.
