Battling Fear

April 13, 2011

in the generous life

I had a very difficult day.  My son faced a fairly significant challenge.  He did fine.  I did not.  I had a day full of fear and “what ifs” … and I had to face the fact that fear was ruling my day.

When I stumble I try to learn from it (the enemy may have his moment, but I know that God can turn every loss into an eventual win).  I examined different areas of my life.  I examined my attitudes and owned that “concern” or “thinking about something” could just be another name for fear.   It was good to do that and give God room to talk to my heart in the middle of the storm.  I’m feeling a bit more secure and balanced at the moment.  My son did return home in one piece  :)  and my focus is back on trusting God to work in and through our lives.

I encourage y’all to take a bit of time to examine your heart for fears and turn them over to God if/when you find them.  If your husband is in a place to hear them, it’s good to share and receive a little encouragement and prayer.

So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.  Matthew 10:31 NIV

Be generous!  Lori <><
