Nothing To Fear

If you’ve ever faced a crisis in life, and survived through it because you ran to God, it somehow makes the unknown of your future easier to handle.

Talking to K-LOVE listener, Susan, today.  She faced something like that.  She said, “when God’s gone with you through tragedy…you know He’ll go through anything with you.

She responded to this story (Melissa Reid wins in first start since her mother’s tragic death. YAHOO! SPORTS) I shared about Professional Golfer, Melissa Read.  She’s a phenom at just 24 years old, but then she was struck with a tragedy.  Four weeks ago, her mom died in a car accident.

This weekend she was already back to competition, and she won!

She said, “To be honest I wasn't that nervous. I think with something like what's happened to my family and me the last four weeks nothing really seems that difficult anymore.”

Susan said, that’s what feels like when God gets you through the unimaginable, like she has.

Taking Your Own Advice

It’s a cruel thing about life sometimesjust when you think you have it all togethersomething comes out of nowhereand makes you realize you can’t do it on your own.

I was just talking to my sister about this. She hurt her knee in silly accident last week and it could be serious, or not.  She admitted to being consumed with fear and worry about it.  She feels like this is going to ruin her exercise plan and her summer vacation.

She’s afraid of something that hasn’t even happened yet.  This could be nothing, but in her mind it’s the end of the world

So, I gave her this big speech on how she doesn’t have to worry.  How God will help her, how He can heal her knee, how He can make her stronger.  I’ve been praying for her to get closer to God and rely on him instead of always trying to do everything on her own.

And then don’t you knowyesterday I decide it’s a good idea to ride a bike with flip flops on.  And I fell off.

I hurt my kneeI’m actually icing it down right now… and I was up all night consumed with worry.  In my head last night, I was in surgery and on crutches for 6 weeks.

I’m feeling weak.

Hello!  I need to take my own advice.

"But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. The will walk and not faint."

Isaiah 40:31 NLT
