We truly have nothing to be afraid of!

How many times have we walked through the valley, everything within us screaming to us that we’re not going to make it or that something bad is going to happen to us? If we’d be honest with ourselves, we’d all have to say we’ve been there one time or another. Every child of God(born-again believer) at some time in their life will face dark hours, or days, or even months, when they feel so isolated and alienated by God and His presence. If that’s where you are today I hope this message will minster to you in your time of need. Love in Christ. 

“Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrow that flies in the day. Do not dread the disease that stalks in darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.” Psalm 91:5-7

But the Word gives us hope to hang on to as we journey through the valley. Many times there is a still small voice that speaks a comforting word or just a quick feeling of “safety” that suddenly hits in the middle of the night.  It’s almost as if we can hear the Father say “Peace!” and suddenly the storm raging around us calms to a balmy peace!

These are precious times, times when our minds are being flooded with fear and doubt but also a time that God makes His presence known. They’re intimate times, personal moments that nobody can take away or dispute with you about! It is during these times that our faith is stretched to “hold on”, but that stretching also causes growth that is not easily reversed! Growth is produced when God confirms His Word in our hearts and in our lives, and we know that we know that we know He has heard our cry, seen our trouble, and moved in our situation.

We truly have nothing to be afraid of. No terror by night, no arrow flying during the daytime, no pestilence, no destruction … God has us in the palm of His hand.

About Jesus is a safe harbor

I am a follower of Jesus. I am a grateful delivered woman who was once an addict, but now God has restored me and renewed me. I have been redeemed and remade by our Creator through salvation of His Son, Jesus Christ! I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything apart from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. He puts people in my life that help me and gives me the opportunity to help another. I am never surprised by his love and blessings. God has placed a confidence and love in myself that I have never had before… so "Thank you God".. for the many True Blue Christians you have put in my life and for all the blessings you bestow on me daily. I have not come this far without lots of prayers and the help and love of my true friends and family and I thank you God for those special people in my life. You are 100% my Savior! I will forever have your name on my lips. I realize now with lots of prayer and reading of the Word… that all the answers were here for me and I never asked the questions. Although I still struggle daily with other life’s daily cards that are dealt, I have an attitude now of “NO MATTER WHAT “– I will praise You, Lord~~~through my storms and my triumphs! I have much more to share and would love to answer any questions anyone may have for through all my trials what has come to be is that I want to help others to see what I didn’t see and hopefully prevent the same hurts, guilt, shame and woes that I had to deal with and give them the best gift of all… JESUS! I believe it's important that we know who we are in God ... We are a one of a kind and God has made us like no other for a purpose- His purpose. Yes, bad things happen and yes, we make poor choices, but we don't have to continue to make them. God's mercies are new each day. Once we realize, know and most importantly believe who we are in Christ, that we are a child of God, we are not an accident, and whatever the circumstances before us each day no matter what they are... God gives us the choice and the power of Him to choose right and live right. We no longer have to live in the past, but in the present and look with expectation to the future with God by our side guiding us and directing our steps. He is our strength and our hope needs to reside in Him. Let his power and love work in your life today and see that life does not have to be the way you are living now. He wants to help you, but you have to let him. He can't make us come to him, he is not lost - WE ARE! Please share this blog with others to encourage them for the glory of God!

  1. Thnak you!

    In times such as you describe here it seems to me to be good to ask:

    WHY me

    WHY now

    WHY Here

    And then pray that you Jesus for this opportunity to prove my love for you

    Continued Blessings

    Patrick
