Fears and how scriptures can help!

What is your biggest Fear? Today I will share some of my heart... 

it is no secret that I struggle with some anxiety, I am most often able to get it to calm down but lately, it has gotten really bad, I am not sure what I fear most but I think I fear to lose Andrew and Brooke the most.  I know that's a common fear.  

Recently I laid on my bible( my head) and I turned on Kari Jobe music and I realized I was feeling better because when we praise it is a sacrifice of praise to the Lord, the anxiety will have to leave because as scripture says: 

Philippians 4:6-7 
6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 

7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. 

John 14:27- 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

That it is the hardest kind and requires the most trust and that He honors that.  I believe that whole-heartedly.  But I still know that my heart holds on to this world tightly.  I think often of the song "Blessed Be Your Name" and the line "He gives and takes away, He gives and takes away, Lord Blessed be Your Name!".  Could I do that if faced with a loss of my family?  I pray so.

  1. This hits home today. My husband is on a business trip this week and normally that brings on a ton of anxiety in me, but I've been Okay this time. I have peace that no matter what comes, God's got this. I'm still praying for his safe travels, but I'm not anxious because my focus has been on Jesus.

  4. This is something I have prayed over a lot and know now that if anything happens to one of my family members it does not make God any less and that my belief in will remain steady.
