Maybe my lion should have had its mouth open -- in a roar... oh well.
“They do not fear bad news; they confidently trust the Lord to care for them. They are confident and fearless and can face their foes triumphantly.”
~ Psalm 112:7-8 NLT
Paula from His Living Sacrifice had this wonderful verse on her blog today. Wonderful because I SOOOOOO needed that message this morning! We are preparing for our trip. It's consumed my thoughts and made my January fly! But fear and worry keep crowding into my thoughts as much as I want to keep them out. "What if ________ happens while I am gone? I will be over 6,000 miles from home!" Apart from food allergies (of all things) *rolling eyes* I'm not so much worried about what will happen to me over there as I am about my family I am leaving here. I've been thinking what if something happens to my grandparents, or parents or siblings, blah, blah, blah. It can drive you crazy and make you just decide to stay home! So anyway, I was glad to read that verse this morning. I'd been dreading bad news, but it's like the Lord said to just stop with the "what ifs" and fearful thoughts and trust in His care. I love how God speaks to me through His Word ... even as it's posted in the blogosphere. (Thanks everyone!) I am going to face those foes (fear, worry) with confidence, rest in His care and triumph over them with His help!
How 'bout you join me in that? We can both be bold and victorious in His care! Ready to roar?! :-)
