Make Me Fearless, Lord



I am starting to see a trend. When I ask God to grant me something, he makes me work for it. Like when I was new parent and desperately wanted/needed patience with my strong willed daughter, he didn't make her any less strong willed. On the contrary, he seemed to up the ante in the form of asthma attacks night upon sleepless night. My girl was not only strong willed and feisty, but she was now tired and sick…yay!

Can you picture it? Sleepy momma on a verge of a nervous breakdown because she didn't have any sleep, literally holding her toddler in a vice grip with one hand and the other opening her little girls mouth while simultaneously shoving a dropper full of medicine down her little red throat because her daughter vehemently hates taking medicine of any kind.

  1. Alicia, you can always ALWAYS just hit me right there where I am feeling it all put into words.

    It seems the older I get the more 'fear' I feel. It's the kind that makes me want to hide not the kind that makes me get out there and be FEARLESS!

    You encourage, thank you!

    1. You encourage as well. We must be some pretty powerful women for Satan to keep messing with us ;) Fear and lies are the only tools in his tool belt, but he knows just how to use them against us. We must stand together and strong and not let him win, we can do big things in our lives if we can do this!
