Fear of loss drives us to desperation and kills joy long before actual loss. To break that fear remember this: what ever you fear losing actually doesn’t belong to you. It is a trust from God. It belongs to Him and He, out of His Mercy, is allowing you to keep it for an allotted time according to His will and wisdom. You have no right to object when He takes it back. It is His to give and to withhold. Rather focus on gratitude for every minute you are allowed to experience its presence. Gratitude is the opposite of fear.

Something happens in the struggle: when your mind says it’s never going to work out, but in your heart, you know what God promised is on the way. Your mind says, “You’re wasting your time; there’s no use believing.” But you just keep on keeping on, doing the right thing, trusting God, thanking Him that’s it’s on the way. That’s sustaining faith. Don’t expect everything to be easy; don’t expect everyone to be for you. If it hasn’t happened yet, that doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen. The victory is on the other side of the opposition. It takes staying power, it takes a made-up mind, it takes someone that’s not moved by the circumstances.
