Just a thought...


Pin It
Just a thought...recently my mom asked I watch a video from a Bible study she is leading at church. It's a great study written by Priscilla Shier. It's always so interesting to me how so many people can watch/view the same video and have so many different thoughts. There can be so many different interpretations and viewers can be challenged in different ways as well.
I have been so concerned about our children lately. Each for different reasons, probably some valid, some not.  Priscilla talked a lot about the "what if's" and the "if only's" the thoughts that are so common by women and/or mothers.  I follow Lots of Scotts and today all the time her writing is just what I need to read. Today was one of those days...she posted about worry. (take a second and read her post, she always makes you think)
Priscilla talked about fear-it's paralyzing, it causes us to forget, and even if we are too concerned about the past/future it WILL cause us to miss TODAY! She talked a lot about how to practice watchfulness and challenged viewers to pause and ask to God to show his activity.
I believe there are so many women and mom's out there who live in fear. I pray you realize this and ask God to release you from it. Honestly, IN MY OPINION there isn't a mother who can speak more in fear that one who has ACTUALLY LOST A CHILD...
I know this is a personal struggle for me but I have overcome SO MUCH by allowing the Lord to give me peace. I have allowed my children to do things some can not and I have no guilty feelings and surprisingly have no fear. No one benefits from living in fear-it effects everyone around you.
I praise Jesus daily for allowing me be free of so many fears mothers who have experienced loss such as I experience daily. I praise the Lord for giving me the opportunity to be raised in a strong Christian home where fear wasn't a common feeling but where trusting the Lord was taught.
I pray my children will learn from watching me (and Mark) trust the Lord with ALL our heart. I pray I will continue to walk with the Lord and not allow fear in our lives! Just a thought...
