I fear everything.
I fear I don't pray enough or hard enough.
I fear I don't trust God enough.
I fear pain.
I fear my pain will never go away.
I fear people. (Sometimes even those closest to me.)
I fear being subjected to the looks I get when I don't meet other's standards.
I fear rejection.
There you have it. The source of my anxieties: fear. It doesn't seem like one should have all that fear if they trust in God, right? Well, I do trust in God...with all my heart! Is it enough? I don't know...it has to be enough for me, right now, right at this point in my life, as I continue to grow my faith in Christ. I'm doing what I can to do that and I know I'm fighting a battle with Satan along the way...I'm sure it's one you all experience or have experienced.
I stay in prayer, read my bible, read Christian books, and I have found a new source of uplifting in my day through the many blogs I have I had the privilege to become acquainted with on the net. I know God has led me this direction and He will continue to lead me in whatever direction I need to qualm my fears and anxieties. He is enough.
I want to share this:
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
3 For I am the LORD, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead.
4 Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give men in exchange for you, and people in exchange for your life.
