Day 30 - 2 Timothy 1:7

“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; 
      but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 

Fear is something I have fought forever.  I think it was passed down to me... fear of the unknown, of the what if's, of the what could happens.  It crippled me for a while.

It is still something I fight with, especially over my children.  But I had to find the strength to lay my children, as well as things in my life down before the throne of God.

Fear will hold you back, and keep you from doing what God has called you to do.  We have been called for a purpose, we all have a part to play in this world, especially if we are part of the body of Christ.  

What do you fear?  How do you keep going forward?

I daily have to place everything I have in the hands of my Daddy God.  I know that He loves me and wants nothing but good things for my life, so I know I can trust Him.

Holy Father, daily I surrender my fear to You and I will trust in You.  Because fear is not something you give to Your children....... you give us power and love and a sound mind.  I will believe in what You have given me, not those things that are not of You!

  1. I have been battleing some fears myself lately! My fear is that I will never hold a baby of my own in my arms....that I will never hear a child call me momma! I fear that I will never make it to where God is calling...that it is just empty dreams! Lastly, I fear that the health I am trying so hard to improve will not ever get any better...that I will be unhealthy forever! I move forward trusting that God would not have put those things in my heart if they were not of him...knowing that he wants what is best for me...and by simply putting one foot in front of the other....day by day! Some days are better than others....Love you sweet friend!
