What are you fears? I fear losing my sweet husband or one of our precious children. I know the Lord would grant me the ability to get through it, but I never want to go there. I fear choking and drowning and cancer. I fear accidents and diseases that attack our little ones. I know that the Bible tells me to "trust in the Lord and lean not on your own understanding." I try. I know worry is not from God. I pray everyday for our family's protection... from accidents, disease, sickness, bad people, etc. Yet, children do get sick and they do leave us. One of my high school friend's was killed in a car accident on his way to meet his wife for lunch. Bad things do happen. We live in a fallen world. I need to pray more that the Lord would take away my worry as I trust Him and His plan for my life (Jeremiah 29:11) and the lives of our children. He knows the number of all of our days. I just need to trust Him that He knows best and enjoy each and every day I am given with the family with whom He has blessed me. I am so grateful for each of them!!
