I spent many restless nights after watching news of horrible things… like 911. I know the anxiety and the longing for someone to just hold me. It’s in these times that you must reach out to friends and talk. It is in these times that we hold on to our faith. We have a father who will never abandon nor forsake us. That is a promise!
I pass David’s words to his on onto you. “Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the Lord God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the Lord is finished.”
He is with you. We are told in over 100 places in the Bible to “fear not” or “be not afraid.” How do we do that? I know I was guilty of just letting my mind wander to the worst possible scenario happening. What would I do if someone broke in my home? Would I run? Would I fight? Would I be hurt? What if there was a fire? etc. etc.
But nothing beats prayer and going to our Abba Father, who loves us SO MUCH! He can calm your fears. So maybe before going to bed, pick up the Bible and read some Psalms. Maybe go to sleep listening to Christian music. Yes, there are so many types of Christian songs… from pop to hip-hop to gospel to folk to country-western. Listen to those words and put your faith out of the reach of the world and back into the our Father’s love. #NiceAttack #GodlyWomen
