Jesus Calling - March 4th

Refuse to worry!  In this world there will always be something enticing you to worry.  That is the nature of a fallen, fractured planet: Things are not as they should be.  So the temptation to be anxious is constantly with you trying to worm its way into your mind.  The best defense is continual communication with Me, richly seasoned with thanksgiving.  Awareness of My Presence fills your mind with Light and Peace, leaving no room for fear.  This awareness lifts you up above your circumstances, enabling you to see problems from My perspective.  Live close to Me!  Together we can keep the wolves of worry at bay.
Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest? Luke 12:25-26
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Fear is a powerful adversary and it can cripple your faith and make you question everything you believe in. Fear is the Devil in your ear, robbing you of your confidence and shaking you to your core. But what is fear if you are a child of Christ?
Fear has no power over a person of faith because Christ has told us again and again that He is with us and that alone is enough. As a mother, I fear for my children’s wellbeing all day, every day. I am stubborn like that even though everything that I have been taught is to “pray and give thanks in all circumstances.” The passage in Luke is so very true – worrying will never solve a problem. But, prayer and faith can most certainly!

What is it that you truly fear for?

It's about kickoff time...

Y'all, it's getting real in here. I am now just 2 days away from the *official* launch of the blog. If you're not familiar with what this blog is about or why I'm writing it, the answer is honest and simple - to live each day as Christ would like me to and to share my ideas, passages and resources in hopes that you'll do the same. We are all in this together and no one person has all the answers. But, if we can commit to dedicate a small amount of our day to truly focusing on His word, we're better for it and a little further ahead than where we started. Sunday's post from Jesus Calling is about trusting in Him during the times when it's most difficult to do so. It's so hard as wives and mothers to say "okay, I can't do this alone and I give my worried heart to You." Don't miss it for sure!

Blessings, Y'all,
