So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
It is easy to allow fear to creep into a mom’s mind because life with children is uncertain, at best. Fear is a powerful four-letter word. And fear has the ability to alter how you would normally make decisions and live life. Mothers can tend to be fearful creatures. We play the “what if” game concerning our children and suddenly our minds are engulfed in fear. When this reaction happens, we tend to be consumed with anxious thoughts and worry. But, what does worrying accomplish? Nothing. Worrying about life does not change your life —it only gives you an ulcer or gray hair!
Living a fearful life is no way to live —no peace exists in that kind of life. We must make an extra effort not to give into fear. In order to not live our lives in fear, we must place our thoughts on God and realize that God is with us AND with our children. God is very capable! When our minds tend to gravitate towards fear, remember Isaiah’s words: “Do not fear, God is with you.” Give your fear to the Lord —lay it at His feet. Ask God to give you strength and hold you in His hands, so you may experience peace. A peaceful life is so much better than a life filled with fear and worry.
Father, Thank You for the promise You give me, that You will hold me in Your hands. I need Your strength Lord. I need You to take my fear away. I admit my mind can easily go to the worst case scenario concerning my children, and I then worry. But, honestly, I am tired of worrying. The thought that You will give me strength and You will hold me is so comforting. I willingly accept your offer.
