Let go of fear..... trust God!

I have not been very good of late at keeping up with my blog page at all, let alone Spiritual Journey Thursday.  But as usual, @muellerholly has chosen another fabulous topic, and this one hit me right in the heart!  Trusting God......

I can say with all confidence that I trust God implicitly.  I have no doubts about how He intercedes in my life.  But..... I also appreciate the gentle reminders from friends, co-workers, and my favorite.... the Holy Spirit to turn that trust over to God on a daily basis.  Sometimes we can get so caught up in the busyness and stress that consumes us, that it's easy to forget that "God's got this".  

As a teacher, I am responsible for my classroom and the precious children I am entrusted with.  When parents put their children on the bus every day, they trust ME to take care of them, to keep them safe, and to help them learn.  No pressure there, huh?   As someone who suffers from depression and mild anxiety, that can seem overwhelming some days.  But, I need to remember that just as  parents trust me with their children, I need to trust Him with those children, and my day, as well.

I will strive every day to live in the day God has given me.  I will try not to worry about a future I have no control over and turn my fear and anxiety over to The One who can wash away my fears.  Thank you, God.


  1. So glad to hear from you! Great words to live by: "God's got this." Love that!

  2. Love this post . . . I believe that worry is simply noise trying to distract one from a real relationship with God. I love your prayer.
