I will not fear...


It's easy to feel overwhelmed when the curve balls of life feel like they're aimed at you day after day, year after year. 
Trials and concerns affect every one of us at one time or another, in fact I've never met a person immune to them, but some seasons in life hammer us with troubles that arrive back to back or piled one atop the other, causing upsets and emotions we may find difficult to contain. 
A sense of hopeless anxiety, darkness and despair threatens to swallow us, and perhaps, if you're like me, sometimes we wish we could close our eyes and not wake up.

When I feel this way it's a red flag that I'm not spending enough time with Jesus; it's a sure sign I've closed my ears to His comfort and strength and bought into the lies of a world with no answer. 

If this is your life at the moment, if you have challenges which make no sense and life feels out of control, go to Jesus. Fall at His feet and let your tears wash over them. You don't have to be strong on your own, you need only to offer Christ your weakness because in your weakness He will make you strong. (2 Cor 12: 9-11)

He is our Helper, our Saviour, the Lover of our soul, our Redeemer and one true Friend. 
Give it up to Him, let it go....do not fear.

Be blessed,

Excellent, Jenny. You are spot on. You know that song, "Come to Jesus" by Chris Rice? I love that song! It always makes me cry, though. Come to Jesus on YouTube.

Thank you once again Jenny, that curve ball is here with me, my daughter still undergoing breast cancer treatment & son in the depths of depression, he has ventured back to attending church & finding solace with many readings! Me........just want to protect my adult children & their families.
I will also look for "Come to Jesus"

Good Morning Jenny! While reading your post, I stopped and just said a prayer; life and everyday trials really are hard both physically and mentally. Yet, when we do stop and spend time with the Lord all of these problems are easier to face and deal with. Thank you for sharing and have a fantastic creative day!

I always look forward to your Sunday scriptures as you have such a way with words and I find such inspiration. Your blog is one of my favorites as you are so talented with your hands as well as your words.

Thank you for this post. When I am overwhelmed or stressed I want to do the same thing and just sleep it all away.

Those times hit me hard last year dealing with my Dad's health and then my Mom's. It all came piling on top of me. All I wanted to to do is cry and sleep but unfortunately I had to work and continue on. Thanks for this post.
