I have never been a major worrier. Most people would describe me as pretty laid back, or calm. But, I have had my seasons of worry.
When I lost my job
When money was very tight
When we were behind on our bills
When I couldn’t find a new job
When I started to lose confidence
When my marriage was falling apart
When I wondered how we could get through it
You could add so many things to this list. But, that was then. Before I learned to stop fighting God. Before I learned to truly trust. Before I learned that I don’t have to do everything on my own. In fact, I had managed to mess up quite a few of those things entirely on my own.
The peace that comes when you finally say yes, and learn to live in conjunction with Him is indescribable.
“Love and fear are literally incompatible in our bodies.” John Ortberg
I am learning to live in this peace and state of happiness that I have never felt.
Have you experienced this? How are you pushing past the fear?
