Fear Reacts – Love Responds

Many people believe the opposite of Love is Hate. This is not true. The opposite of Love is Fear. Hate is born out of fear which is birthed in the absence of True Love. In fact, evil is born out of fear, in a vacuum or the absence of the presence of the Lord. This is shown by John in the scripture, “Perfect Love casts out all fear!” 1 John 4:18. Be a RESPONDER, not a REACTOR! Fear Reacts – Love Responds!

I have seen so many signs on people’s shirts, bumper stickers, here and there that say, “No Fear!” I always think to myself, “Liars!” Somewhere hidden deep in the depths of their hearts, there it lies just waiting for its opportunity, fear. It is waiting to rise up when it is least expected and to grab its victim by the throat, shaking them to the core. Everyone has a bit of fear inside.

The only way we can overcome fear is to allow True Love to come into our hearts and drive it out. Oh, we can overcome some fears in the natural but the main fears are those in our hearts. To know Him Who is True Love is to know Him Who knows no fear. When a person understands why they were created and that Father God loves them more than they can imagine, it changes their whole life. When they start walking with Him and really experience that love, fear starts to leave because it is exposed by the light of His truth and has no place left to remain. A person who has the love and acceptance of the Lord, can stand firmly and boldly in the face of fear.

I pray that you might know Him better, that you might find the purpose He created you and that by His grace you might be able to fulfill your destiny here on this earth. There is nothing better than living your life doing the very thing that He planned for you before time began. Psalm 139. Blessings and grace…

I have just designed some new artwork to illustrate this phrase. It is available in our Zazzle Store online as bumper stickers and mugs. I will be adding it to the shirts, mouse pads and other products soon. I hope you enjoy all of my artwork there and hope you have been encouraged to reach higher and go further than you ever thought possible.

Janiece and I travel and minister to individuals and groups as doors open for us to go. We are starting a new thing this year. We will be going to communities, as the Lord leads, and booking hotel meeting rooms to do concerts. We will invite those from the hotel as well as the community. We will connect to other churches and organizations in those communities to help those who desperately need help, and who, perhaps won't come into a church building. We share His love to those who haven’t heard of their Father’s love for them and also minister in song. We’ve both been through a lot and have been healed and restored and that we have to pass on to others. We can speak through truth and experience because we’ve been there. If you would like to book us for a concert, event, speaking and/or ministry meeting, please use our CONTACT page. We hope we have helped to encourage you to go on and find the wonderful destiny God has planned for you. Psalm 139. Fly higher…

SDDL Website

I am presently converting “Sentenced To Death, Destined For Life” into a movie and have just finished publishing the 3rd book in the sequel to “Islands In The Sea”, titled “Illegitimate?” It is now available in the trilogy on this site through Amazon. We finished filming and producing the JOURNEY TO HOPE! 7 DVD Series with Janiece Turner-Hartmann and they are on YouTube for those who need help and encouragement. We are planning to take some time out to record some more music and then start touring early this year, 2017. Hope to see you on the road.
