encouraging words wednesday…..{fear}

fear is yucky, isn’t it? insidious. sneaky. it can make us run when we should walk. it can make us stay when we should go. i can make us doubt when we should believe.

yesterday, lisa wrote a post about fear. sometimes, what is a blessing to us can also make us fearful.

i’ve been struggling with some fears myself. haven’t we all??

i’m afraid of really working my business. i want so badly to succeed. what if i give it my best effort and still fail?

on a scale of 1 to 10, that particular concern is pretty low on the scale compared to others’ fears. but fear is fear, right?

as jesus girls, how do we deal with fear? having faith in God doesn’t eliminate the fact that sometimes we will be afraid.

nope, being a christian isn’t some super power that means we will never fear.

we’re human. we’re imperfect. that’s what satan’s counting on. because when we fear, we take our eyes off of God.

God is our super power. He’s our shield.

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus”
~philippians 4:6-7

i didn’t have any wise words for lisa but i really liked what maggie had to say. “pray with confidence”

….Lord, i know that you will keep me safe. Lord, i know that you have good plans for me. Lord, i know that you will get me through this difficult situation…..

is fear holding you back from something today?
