I read that on Ann's blog today, and I immediately wrote myself a reminder on our kitchen prayer board.
Because I've found that to be true.
When we lived four blocks away from our church, I used to walk to my evening Bible study. Sometimes, it would be eerily quiet on the walk home and since the only lights were from the windows of houses, my journey would be a dark one with lots of shadows. I found that singing chased away the fears that would creep into my heart.
But I have fears that far surpass being scared of the dark.
Today, I read this Q & A with a funeral director. Incredibly insightful, informative, and thought-provoking.
One of my greatest fears is about losing unsaved friends and family to death.
Between the words of wisdom from Ann's mother-in-law and Caleb Wilde's post, I was faced with the opportunity, yet again, to say, "Lord, I believe. Help my unbelief."
Today's Joy Dare (via Ann Voskamp):
3 Gifts: one at 10 a.m., one at 1 p.m., one at 10 p.m.
1 p.m. - Quick and easy access to medicine for hives. These are the moments in which I remind myself that there are perks to living in a first world nation.
