FEAR - It is a game stopper. You may have a strong feeling on what to do but if it is out of your comfort level, fear sets in and you act on it. I have fears, we all do but if you give them to the LORD, amazing things happen. One of my fears is bad weather. To what seems to be a little storm to most becomes blown out of proportion in my brain to be a twister, hurricane or tornado. I laugh at this at times but it is a real fear. Last night, I was blessed to be able to attend a Lionel Richie concert. It was at a venue that was partially outside. The clouds turned dark, the wind picked up, my children started texting me (it is amazing the fears we pass down to our kids) and those butterflies started flittering. The concery was postponed and my anger came into play. I threw ugliness in the way of words out of my mouth, criticizing the venue managers and even Lionel himself. "How dare he!" A nice couple sitting next to me ministered to me. Strangers, but they knew I was scared. I was reminded to pray and of a phrase I use often, "If GOD brings you to it, then HE WILL bring you through it. AND HE DID! By grace I had a great time, peace within and all in all I learned once again, that GOD is bigger than my fears! I am a slow learner at times! I pray LORD that anyone who is reading this be blessed by your peace as I was in times of fear and worry. Thank you JESUS for giving me what I do not deserve!
