Removing the Dread

Kara Tippetts, a 38-year-old mother of four, inspired readers while facing the “hard.” In The Hardest Peace (David C. Cook), she described her family’s 2012 move to Colorado Springs to plant a church – only to have a fire destroy 346 homes in their new neighborhood 10 days later. Soon afterward, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, which spread throughout her body.

While discussing these trials with her oldest daughter, Tippetts read Proverbs 1:33 – “Those who listen to me will be secure and will live at ease, without dread of disaster.” 
Tippetts wrote, “It does not say God removes the disaster. But the dread of disaster. The dread and fear are what so often steal our peace and leave us on the edges of our moments exhausted. We meet the scary of life and forget to turn to God and listen and know his peace. Dread exposes my fear and weak faith and failure to trust where my eternal security rests.” 


Together, Tippetts and her daughter prayed “to live present in the gifts and callings of today without dread of tomorrow.”
