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:

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace 
as you trust Him; 
so that you will overflow with hope 
by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13  

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:

Don’t worry about whether what you fear will come to pass or not, 
you’re looking too far ahead…
Look at what I’m telling you in My Word…
and trust Me to overcome your anxiety.  

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,

and He will supply me with all joy and peace…
not some, not just a little, or even enough,
but all.  
That’s huge, and it’s His promise. 

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.

What about you?  
What fears are crippling your life…
What’s keeping you away from what God wants to give to you? 

God promises to release you of all this…and He’s the only one that could ever make good on such a promise.

Give Him your trust and attention, 
and just see how He, in turn, speaks to you..

I write about my life's core: Jesus & my faith, my family, and the struggles I have met along the way. I figure...I hope...that if exposing my life and it's lessons learned can encourage even one person, this blog and all the hours I have spent behind this computer will have been more than worth it.
