Fear

>> Monday, May 3, 2010

I fear.


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:


Our Work Is To Believe
The work that God requires of us is to believe, and believing requires that we cleave to, trust in, rely on, and have faith in Him and His Son Jesus Christ.  If we truly have faith in God, if we truly lean our entire personality on Him in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness, we will not be anxious or worried.  We will quit trying to build ourselves and will allow Him to build us and equip us.  (Author Unknown)


Until next time,
Keep it from the heart,
Nan

ISIAH 43:1-4
1 But now, this is what the LORD says—he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: "Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.
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.

The Lord is my light and my salvation - whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life - of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
