Real talk for a minute? I have a lot of issues with fear. I am constantly battling thoughts of the ‘what if’s, the possibilities of impending tragedy, and I often have to fight thoughts of worry. I absolutely trust to the core of who I am that God is good by nature and faithful because of WHO HE IS, but I also know that bad things, really bad things can still sometimes happen to people who believe those things as well. So what do you do with that? How do you reconcile the fact that God really is working everything for my favor but that we also live in an ugly, gross, messed up world where bad things happen?! I have decided to make a daily choice to trust that even if bad things happen, the Father will see me through it — every step of the way. I have recently taken so much comfort from this scripture and I wanted to share:
She is not afraid of bad news;
her heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.
Her heart is steady; she will not be afraid.
Man I am just LIVING in this scripture these days. Everyday, reading it, believing it, and trusting.
