How Amanda's healing of fear helped another

We learn from the Bible that God is Love. The book of First John says: "Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love" (4:7, 8).

How do we know God loves us? Through the good thoughts that come from Him. God's love is infinite, ever present. It fills all space. He loves all His children and cares for each of them. Wrapped in His tender love, we are safe.

Alexander, a small boy I know, was unhappy. He was being bullied at school. We had a talk about God, and I asked him if he knew who was in charge. He said he knew God was, and he knew that God is Love. As we shared some of the ideas I have written here, I told him that he could love this boy and see him as he is in truth, as God's perfect, loving likeness. There was absolutely nothing to be afraid of because God's love is all-powerful, and it was with them both all the time.
