I don't know about anyone else, but my fears cripple me. I fear what others say; and what they think of me. It is a fear that I fight with all the time. I can't seem to over come this fear.Time and time again Isa.41:10 will pop in my head to remin me hat if I put my fears in God He will take care of everything. But at the time I want to hang on to my fears, not that they give me any comfort but because I just want to keep them close. I know what God's word says, I just like the idea that I have some contorl over it or so I think.Yeah, my fears are going to be taken care of by me, because I 'm gonna sit up all night worrying over them,and get up in the morning only to find that I now have extra worrys the devil has thrown at me just to keep me busy.Oh ok I want to rethink this, Isa.41:10 says, not to be afrid, God will take care of everything. He cares for me even when I'm still trying to hang on to fears that I can do nothing about.I think it would be easier on me to let God have them all. Oh I could sleep well at night knowing that God is on duty and I can rest. Yep, that's what I'm gonna do, let God do the worrying for me.
Ok, Father, here and now I gve all my worries. I know I can do nothing about them,so I want to be a good child and let you take all my cares. You know what they are. I put them in your hand, I don't want them back, you keep them. I don't want anything to cause me stress about what I can't fix.
There now I feel so much better.
