Being Fearless

But I call to God, and the LORD saves me. Evening, morning and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. Psalms 55:16-17

Fear is such a hard thing for moms I think. It works alongside worry. Those kinda go hand in hand. I have struggled with the two all of my life I think, but since being married and having children it has grown into a burden really. I get consumed with finances, children, health, work, my spirituality, my husband, my marriage, my home, my extended family and on and on and on. It is a constant battle to just let it go and give it to God. last night I was up late - trying to work on my "home" and it happened. Right there in my living room as I was picking up the toys scattered from the evening I knelt down and wept. I did no cry, I wept. My whole body was shaking and I could feel my heart purging all that was bottled up inside. And then I heard it - "tell me your heart" I went to the couch and prayed. I confessed all of those fears to my Father. I went to my bible and just opened it up and Psalms 55 was there. I read it over and 16-17 stuck out.
I call out and he hears my voice! I slept better last night than I have in weeks. I feel better this morning. I prayed again this morning for God to help me overcome this battle. Help me to be fearless. God is my hope! I appreciate the comments from before.
My prayer for you today is that you will open your hearts to God and let him take over the fears and worries of your life. The we will do this everyday so that we can enjoy the Peace the HE provides. Have a blessed day!

This is awesome and very humbling all wrapped together. Thanks for sharing this it is encouraging to me. I had much the same sense today out walking under the stars. He wants my focus on Him not all the distractions. You know I just got through telling Him "take me into the dessert and show me you. Take away anything that is keeping me from hearing your voice". HOpe you don't mind me reading.

love ya,
