There's a powerful song that has been making its way up the contemporary Christian charts recently called "Fear Is A Liar," by Zach Williams. In my experience as a pastor, counselor, husband, father, brother, friend ... son of God ... I have both seen and personally experienced the negative truth of those four little words.
We also know that many times what we fear turns out to be nothing. I came across a post on Huffington Post recently that exposed just how often we buy into that deception.
