Confronting Your Fears
Some pretty incredible things are going down over here in our household…things that I am not yet at liberty to speak of, but I assure you, I will.
These very same beautiful things, however, are obligating me to face my deepest darkest fears. Oh sure, we all have them to some degree or another. For me, I’m usually quite able to tuck them away without really having to deal with them at all. In fact, I have had it tucked away for so long that I really was unaware of the power I’d allowed it to have over me until recently.
Before I ever even lifted my head off the pillow, mornings had taken to greeting me with a sour cup of dread and anxiety. Over and over I prayed, but nothing seemed to be reaching me.
But then…a verse….and the walls of fear that had started to close in on me began to crumble:
There’s so much power in trusting Him…and it’s so much more powerful than fear could ever be.
It is only when we trust Him that that the walls can begin to crumble…and like the morning sun finding it’s way through the cracks in my blinds, I found that I was soon able to hear God more clearly:
What I had wanted was a solution and a promise, absolving me of my fear of the unknown, but what I gained was a deep trust that God will hold me in peace right here. Right now. He will take care of me always, and I’ve no doubt or hesitation about it…not for one minute
Oh, I’m sure anxieties will come and go, but I know that my King will overcome every time. I know that all He’s looking for is my trust in Him,
So I’ve traded in my anxiety, my deepest darkest fear, in favor of a conscious and deliberate focus and effort to trust in my Lord.
God promises to release you of all this…and He’s the only one that could ever make good on such a promise.
