How can we manage our fear about our children's safety?

Having 5 kids, I know the fear moms face on a daily basis that something might happen to one of their children. 

I know fear’s paralyzing affects; I know how it makes you want to tuck your kids under your wing and never let them leave your side.  But I also know this isn’t how God wants us to handle our fears.  It wouldn’t be healthy for my kids to never spread their own wings and fly.

So, I read God’s truths in the Bible.  And, I use the words about His protection as I pray.  I verbalize my trust in God.  And I make the choice to rest in the assurance of His promises.

The minute fear starts to creep in and haunt my heart, I repeat this cycle.  But does it mean that nothing bad will ever happen to my children?  No.  Does it mean that my heart can finally find peace past the fear that could consume me?  Absolutely!
