I love how God changes our plans in unexpected ways. Since last minute is my specialty, I decided to go and talk about my current pursuits in serving God in my life.
I had a great afternoon talking to the students about writing, blogging and loving my Lord. What an amazing opportunity to mix things that I love most. My children, my opportunities to spread the Good News of the Gospel through writing, and talking to the students about how much God impacts my whole life.
I extended to the students an opportunity to guest blog on my page. This was voluntary (and meant extra homework), so I am glad to have received an entry.
This entry is from Olivia. I asked the students to draw a picture and write about how God affects their lives and gave them several writing ideas.
Olivia wrote "When God Helps me!" Inside with her picture her quote says, "God help me, now I am not scared."
Thank you Olivia for sharing a simple yet profound truth. How many times do we try to do things in our lives through our own strength? We sometimes even let our fears get in the way of God doing His work through us. Read Am I In the Way? for more on getting out of God's way so He can do His work in us.
Once we submit our fears to the Lord and rely on Him, He is free to release our fears.
Olivia, remember this amazing promise that Moses gave to Joshua before entering the land God had promised to His people, from Deuteronomy 31:8. Do not be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD will personally go ahead of you. He will be with you; he will neither fail you nor abandon you. (NLT)
We are told time and time again, DO NOT BE AFRAID! I love this promise. We are told that the LORD will personally go before us. How awesome He is! With that amazing promise we don't have to be afraid. We can embrace our fears and in His presence we can be Fearless.
Enjoy this beautiful new song called Fearless by Mia Fieldes.
