Hi my friends,
How are you doing today? Hope all is well. It’s me, Latisha, writing you from my present (January 13th), to store in my “Virtual Freezer” and publish in your present (my future). Why I’m I writing this post meant to be published the first week in April 2016, January 2016? Here’s why.
If all goes well, right now I’m at home resting, snuggling up or nursing the newest and littlest member of our family. You see, I’m currently pregnant and awaiting his or her arrival. I’m hoping and praying that we have a healthy delivery. Nevertheless, I don’t want to leave you guys hanging, those you who link-up with TGI Saturdays week after week or those of you visiting for the first time.
So I prepared 19 weeks of pre-scheduled posts in a series called “Saturday Inspirations.” This series is designed to be encouraging, uplifting and inspiring. A nice spiritual boost for Spring. I hope you are blessed by these post I prepared.
I would love it, if you drop me a line via my comment box, I sure could appreciate your prayers, encouragement and even hear your answers to today’s community question. Trust me, I’ll be checking in to read your words.
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV)
I have to tell you, today I’m feeling a bit anxious. I have to do something that scares me. Not a really big thing mind you. A little thing, that others could do with ease, but for me, having to do this makes me uneasy. No one can do it for me, I have to do it for myself and the pay off should be a good one. I’m nervous, and my nervousness feels awful, my chest feels tight, my heart races and I just want to hide under my pillows. I hate stepping out my comfort zone, but yet still if I stay here, then I’ll never receive the blessing or answers God has for me as a reward for being brave. It’s times like these, I have to starve my fear and feed my faith. Draw on God’s strength and not my own. By the time you’re reading this, my scary journey would have passed and God would have given me the strength I needed to get through it, if I go ahead and step out in faith. So here I go. I hope the poem below helps you find the courage to face your fears today or in the future. Remember God’s got you!
Things to Remember When I’m Afraid
Once again another door has opened
Leaving me outside my comfort zone
Once again my mind is filled with fear,
Descending from my throne
But the things I forget,
that I need to remember
I’m a daughter of the King
There is power piercing through my veins,
So let the victory bells ring
Sinners, they let their voices be heard
They represent the worst
So why not through me
From out of my lips, let good things burst
Satan, he wants me to hide
Never let it shine
The light that this world cannot create
That comes from God divine
Gods in my corner
He leads me through
His message I’ll deliver
So why hide away, why stand back
and let my body quiver
I am stronger than I have ever known
and I know who gives me strength
So lest I forget,
I’m God’s warrior
and I can go the length
Written by L.J.G.B (me)
Peace, Love and Blessings to you.
What do you do when you have to face something that scares you?
