Flatten The Fear

The most perfect picture of faith and trust can be found in the face of my beautiful baby girl. She does not worry that I will drop her or leave her in the restaurant in her carseat. She doesn't lose sleep because she is stressed that she might not be taken care of when she wakes up. She is perfectly at peace. Sometimes I jostle her around too much trying to get her in the car or in the stroller, but she isn't worried about it. She knows that I am not going to let anything happen to her. I envy this trust and carefree spirit. If only I could be more like my 5 month old daughter...

These days there are so many things to be afraid of. The economy is bad, gas prices are high, money is tight, families are falling apart, people are getting killed, hurt and abused. When you turn on the TV you are bombarded by fear. How can anyone even leave the house in safety? How can my family possibly make it through this hard time? How are we going to pay the mortgage? These questions constantly come into our minds. The only way to conquer this fear is to rise above it and trust our Creator. We don't have the answers to these questions, and to worry about them isn't going to change the outcome. We have to have faith instead of fear. Making the decision to exchange your fear for faith will change your life. Every time fear starts to creep up in my life I flatten it and say, "I have no control over this situation, and I am not going to change it by worrying, God please deal with this and do your will." By doing this I become more like my baby girl. I am trusting God to take this situation and deal with it while I sleep peacefully and know that I am going to be ok. No matter what. Good bye fear, hello freedom.

We want to hear from you!!!
