Hi Blogger friends!  I’m so sorry that I was not “with it” last month!  As many of you know, I am expecting my 3rd child and I have been exhausted!  Many things are going undone around my house including my blog!  My taste for foods has drastically changed and wow what a sense of smell I now have!  Ha…The joys of pregnancy!  Please forgive me!  I hope to be posting regularly again soon.
Expecting my 3rd child has been much different than my first 2.  Maybe it is because I’m older, but I am much more fearful.  With my first son, I was oblivious to the fact that something could go wrong.  Even going on bed rest at 32 weeks and delivering at 36, I was never fearful about the unknown.  With my second child I had thoughts about something being wrong, but they were few and far between.  I am only nine weeks pregnant and for some reason I am bathing this child in my womb with more prayer than I ever did my first 2 because of fear.  

Now, I know that God does not give us a sense of fear.  However, I do believe that if and when we are fearful He is the One to run to!

Are you fearful about anything in your life right now?

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7

Henry Blackaby stated, “The only fear the God encourages in a Christian’s life is the fear of God (2 Cor. 5:10-11; Heb. 10:31).”

There is no reason to live in fear of life experiences when we have the mighty presence of the Holy Spirit with-in us.  Ask God to free you from any fear you are experiencing.  I did!  

Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you for taking away my fear.  Lord I pray that if anyone reading this blog is also help captive by a fear that they will give it to you and let it go.  Take hold of their lives and help them to live a life which focuses on hope instead. Amen
