Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!


       

     I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.


     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wants the best for us even in the midst of the storms of life. Even when we do not understand what is is going on or  when nothing makes sense and everything seems wrong.

     God does not promise to take away the storms. God does promise to fill each storm with His presence and power. He will never leave us alone in the storm.  He may not even calm the storm but He can calm us in it if we but let Him. It is easy to trust Him when the seas are calm and the skies are clear, but the true strength of our faith is measured in the midst of the  storms.Faith is a choice to believe God and walk through our fear, knowing we can trust Him every step of the way. I am choosing faith over fear, will you?

For Today

Looking out my window...a little cool but sunny and nice
I am thinking... about how much I hate the effects of this time change on my grands

I am thankful... for friends who pick me up when I want to give up
One of my favorite things...  listening to my windchimes and birds singing
I am wearing... redpants, church tshirt and tennis shoes

I am creating...  growing minds at the moments, homeschooling my grands, preparing them for the future the Lord has for them


I am watching...nothing at the moment, my little bit of tv time tends to be Paw Patrol and Vamparina with the grands
I am reading... my bible and trying to make time for quiet time with me and the Lords word each day
I am listening to...Casting Crowns are a favorite right now
Praise You In The Storm This one is getting me through right now
I am hoping... for spring to be here soon, so ready
I am learning... thatyou have to do what is right even when people are trashing you and tearing you down with their lies
In the kitchen... chick…

The Simple Woman's Daybook {April Edition}

For Today

Looking out my window... Sunny spring day with still a touch of coolness
I am thinking... that nothing takes God by surprise and we need to lean on Him more and less on ourselves
I am thankful... that even when I don't like me, God loves me

One of my favorite things... spending time with my husband
Taken at our Cowboy Carnival held at our church this past Sunday

I am wearing... Tshirt, jeans and my new cute compression socks
I am creating... boundaries so that I don't get lost in the shuffle of life and be me, the me I am happy with and not the me that others want me to be

I am watching... House Improvement shows, not really into a series but just enjoy these that I can sit and watch a episode and if I miss one, no big deal and then just watch the next one when I have time to sit down and watch


I am reading...I hit a wall on reading the bible through in a year but am reading my daily plans at You version on my phone


I am listening to... cartoons and the younger 2 kids playing …
