It has been reported that the late, great newspaper counselor, Ann Landers, received an average of 10,000 letters each month, and nearly all of them from people burdened with problems. She was asked if there was any one thing which predominates throughout the abundance of letters she receives, and her reply was the one problem above all others seems to have been fear.
She stated that she found that people are afraid of losing their health, their wealth, their loved ones. People just seem to be afraid of life itself.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” – 2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV).
