Every week bloggers are able to come together and write for five straight minutes about whatever that week's word is.
This week's word: afraid
Start time: 2:22pm
Afraid. What a word to have this week. I am definitely experiencing some of this here lately.
Afraid of the what if's....
The good thing is, I don't have to be afraid. Even when things are crazy and unsure and unknown.
As a mom, being afraid of the choices you make can become all-consuming.
Am I doing the right thing as a mom? Am I disciplining and guiding? Am I being unreasonable? Am I being loving? Am I setting a good example?
Thank God, though, that I don't have to be afraid. I can trust Him to guide my steps as a parent.
As a missionary's wife I even experience being afraid that someone won't like me for who I am!
Am I smiling enough? Are my clothes just right? Am I supporting my husband in the exact way they think I should be?
God created me PERFECTLY- what's not to like, right?
Afraid. Being afraid can be too much to handle. Being afraid can just take over your life.
But it doesn't have to. I don't have to be afraid of the "what ifs". I don't have to be afraid of my decisions. I don't have to be afraid of "fitting in".
As long as I am following God and trusting in Him there is no need to be afraid.
Trusting is what can cancel out the fears of being afraid.
End time: 2:27pm
