Crippling Fear

I think even if you live under a rock you know that the state of our world recently is pretty yuckie.  I hate watching the news just because I honestly don’t want to hear about it anymore.  It’s getting to the point where I’m so concerned every where I go.  I mean I know that I need to constantly be aware of my surroundings, but goodness! What is going on?! I’m scared for our world, and I know that it will only get worse.  I’m terrified for my children; I can’t help but weep for the world they will grow up in.  It’s so hard for me to not live every day in fear; to leave my house and potentially expose my children to the dangers of this world.  What if there is a bombing? What if my children are stolen from me at the grocery store? What if we’re in a car accident?  The what ifs can torture me, and I try so hard not to go to that place in my mind.  But sometimes I do.  I can’t help it.  The only way to get past it is to cling to the Lord.  He already knows what is going to happen; the story is already written.  I trust that He is Mighty and has ultimate control, and therefore I have nothing to be worried about.  I don’t have any control over what will happen, so I pray daily (sometimes many times a day) because I do not need to fear.  The Lord has promised us that there are going to be trials (James 1:2-8, 1 Peter 4:12, more here), so I shouldn’t be shocked or fear that they are coming.
Joshua 1-9My favorite verse that I cling to in the midst of trials.  Click here for more.
This song (more like a chant or anthem) is what I let play over and over me to remind me that the God of all is in control.  I hope you're reminded of His peace today!

 In this time of desperation
When all we know is doubt and fear
There is only one foundation
We believe, we believe
In this broken generation
When all is dark, You help us see
There is only one salvation
We believe, we believe

We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He's given us new life
We believe in the crucifixion
We believe that He conquered death
We believe in the resurrection
And He's comin' back again, we believe

So, let our faith be more than anthems
Greater than the songs we sing
And in our weakness and temptations
We believe, we believe!

We believe in God the Father!
We believe in Jesus Christ!
We believe in the Holy Spirit!
And He's given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He's comin' back again!

Let the lost be found and the dead be raised!
In the here and now, let love invade!
Let the church live loud our God we'll say
We believe, we believe!
And the gates of hell will not prevail!
For the power of God, has torn the veil!
Now we know Your love will never fail!
We believe, we believe!

We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He's given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He's comin' back,
He's comin' back again!
He's comin' back again!
We believe!
We believe

Hello from another Darby! Saw a comment of yours on a post from Meg O on the Go and had to come say hi. I don't know about you, but our name is pretty hard to find.

I feel you on this post. This world is terrifying, and I am thankful that we have found a great church that is so focused on their kid's ministry so that my children know that they can trust in our Lord to guide them.

I love your blog, just followed it!
