“They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the LORD to care for them.”
Psalms 112:7 NLT
I’m going to be transparent for a moment. I’ve struggled with fear the last few years.
It all started when I had my first daughter in 2013. I was a new, young Mom who really had no idea what I was doing. I was sleep deprived, anxious, not taking care of myself properly and dealing with everything postpartum.
I would lay down at night and try so hard to fall asleep only to have the worst thoughts creep into my mind and absolutely frighten me.
It got worse when I had my second daughter in 2018. I was barely functioning at one point and finally made the decision to reach out for help from my Pastors wife.
Fear is a normal human reaction to certain situations, but when it begins to control every aspect of your life, it’s time to make a change.
I so wish I had read this scripture a few years ago. I wish I would have made the decision to confidently trust the Lord to care for me, and to kick fear out of my life.
Today, you can make that choice. You can choose to trust God even in the midst of a season that is filled with fear. You can decide to say “fear, in the name of Jesus Christ you have to leave my mind!” I trust Jesus!”
God, help me to trust you today. I know You have always provided for me and cared for me. I pray against fear in my mind today!
