Fear Strangles Freedom

The Lord and I have tackled and conquered many obstacles over the years, the obstacles I speak of being my fears. Yet with each new challenge initially I doubt.

Since Brian’s stroke in 2007 we lost all the finical security we once thought we had.

The fear I am currently wrestling with is my unknown future. Brian and I are living with my Father. I need to be there to care for him so I am comfortable for the time being. But……… what happens when he is no longer here. Where will go? I went to bed with these fears last night, had fretful dreams about them and carried them through my morning. As I sat reading the Psalms I heard church bells ringing in the distant, I could clearly hear Great is Thy Faithfulness. As I listened to each verse I felt they were meant just for me.

Great is Thy Faithfulness

Morning by Morning New Mercies I see

All I Have Need of Thy Hand Has Provided

Great is Thy Faithfulness Lord unto Me.

I am reminded he has taken care of me every step of the way.

My fears melted away. How freeing it is not to live in fear.

Did you know that songs origins are from Lamentations?

Because of the Lords great love we are not consumed,

For his compassions never fail.

They are new every morning;

Great is thy faithfulness

Lamentations 3:22-23
