Today I watch a short film by David Cook, “Consider the Birds,” that documents the journey of Ed Dobson as he battles ALS. In the clip I watch, Ed says, “When you’re living in fear, every issue is overwhelming.”
Instead of fear, Ed talks about letting go of his future and trusting God who will never leave or forsake him. And this doesn’t happen once; this happens multiple times a day as Ed tries to “live in the moment.”
This quote about fear stays with me all day. We don’t want to live in fear, and with God, we don’t have to.
Although it costs to watch the movie, you can watch the trailer for free here: https://flannel.org/products/eds-story-1-3
