but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.
There are things that happen in life that change us. We can get scared in the big why or the wonder of what is next in life. God has promised to take care of us and he will renew our strength. As I grow older, I can feel scared about tomorrow sometimes. I wonder how will my story end and what will people remember about me. I override the scared feeling that pops into my mind and remind myself of scriptures of now. The Bible says to fear not, fear not, fear not and I believe that.
Isaiah 41:10 English Standard Version (ESV)
fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
I FEEL SCARED ~
Then I remind myself of the power of God and all the great things he has already done for me. Nobody knows my thoughts but God. Nobody knows my hearts true desires but God. There is absolutely no reason to get scared. God is able to handle my now because I've seen him handle my yesterdays. He has brought me through the hardest things of life and continues to be faithful. I have learned to go to him in prayer and to praise him in all seasons.
Mark 11:24 English Standard Version (ESV)
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
KEEP BELIEVING ~
Along time ago, God purposed your life and he knew your free will would change things. God gives us another chance and even more than one. Surrendering our complete hearts to God is what changes things not only inside of us, but in lives of others. The things we do, we spread within our homes and outside our homes. Each of us can get scared over things of life. Things like a doctor's report, test from school, work issues, friend or family issues, but God is able to handle it all. God says:
2 Timothy 1:7 King James Version (KJV)
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Feeling scared can lead to fear. There is no reason to fear when we know God has a plan. I choose to live Jeremiah 29:11 A plan, a promise and a future. Hold onto the scriptures in all seasons. Hold onto faith no matter what. God is still able to move the mountain before you or the ones you care about in life. Life is short and we must purpose time with family and friends. Purpose time for yourself and speak words of life. One negative thought can lead to another one. I have found myself scared over things of life and everything worked out fine.
Never listen the voice that says you must fear the thing in front of you. God is bigger than that fear or the thing in front of you. Never listen to the voice that says your not good enough. Fear isn't from God and he has equipped you with an overcoming power of Jesus. He is still a miracle worker and never forget that. Live in today and allow this day to be the best one ever. There are somethings we can not change and must face it. In facing the things that scare you, you will find strength that only God can give. He never leaves us and never forget that. Maybe you don't feel God right now, but continue to seek him. I will hold on for the readers of my blog, your family and friends for your request to God too.
BEING HUMAN ~
I feel scared at times, but I know who to run too ~ GOD.
I also call the one who I know will pray for me and peace enters my mind. Prayer works and never doubt that. It's a new day filled with great opportunities to make a difference in your own life and others.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
