Linking up with Lisa Jo again this week to participate in Five Minute Friday. I love this because it is just a commitment of five minutes of unedited writing….we can all do that can’t we?? So if you haven’t started this series yet…today’s the day!
Today’s word is AFRAID – ready, set go –
I find myself afraid a lot. Worried about the decisions I have made, worried about the “worst case scenario”. Do you find yourself there too?
When my husband doesn’t answer his cell phone right away, and he is on the road, he must be in a ditch somewhere….crazy right?
Fear is one of those things in my life that the enemy attacks most. Knowing that it is a way to keep me down – focused on all of the “what ifs” and not on the peace that comes with trusting God.
“Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand” Isaiah 41:10
This needs to be my mantra….God IS with me.
He is MY God.
He will strengthen me, He will help me, He will uphold me with His right hand.
So many beautiful promises in those words.
And when I reflect back on all of the difficult situations in my life I can see those promises played out.
He HAS been there.
He HAS given me strength, He HAS helped me and upheld me.
He IS my God.
No longer should I face my day afraid…but confident in the plan that my God has for me.
Heads held high sisters….heads held high!
