Helmets Optional

Psalm 118:6 English Standard Version (ESV)
6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear.
    What can man do to me?

Isaiah 41:10 New English Translation (NET Bible)
10 Don’t be afraid, for I am with you!
Don’t be frightened, for I am your God!
I strengthen you—
yes, I help you—
yes, I uphold you with my saving right hand!

Jude 24 New English Translation (NET Bible)
Final Blessing
24 Now to the one who is able to keep you from falling, and to cause you to stand, rejoicing, without blemish before his glorious presence,

No, I'm not a fearful Christian! 
Oh, but I am.  I know God can uphold me but worry that He won't.  He's got so many hands to hold, He might miss mine.  So though I'm living in the shadow of the cross, indwelled with the Spirit, drenched in His grace, I still scramble for the world's protection.  I wear the stupid helmet.
