He said “DO YOU TRUST ME?”
and with that He walked me on a journey
holding His hand
realizing that I have shaken in fear
for far too long
I was visiting my grandma
of course sweet grandma
keeps a copy out where all can see it
I had written this book back in 2009
I picked it up and read through
seeing my old journal entry’s
and hearing my fearful cries
and knowing that I still struggle here
the most interesting moment for me
is realizing that I didn’t get down on myself
I didn’t see myself a loser
a less than
I didn’t see that I don’t measure up
What I saw was ….
This has always been my struggle
He created me to overcome
we all struggle with something
and this Fear to be who I am is mine
I have pages and pages of blog posts
I have pages and pages in journals
I have many many more written in my heart
on the topic called F -E-A-R
This blog is my story of overcoming
the daily struggle to be me in a world
that screams that I should just hide
DO YOU TRUST ME?
Yes Lord I do!
I’m singing a special at Church for Easter
I have sang this song so many times
but at our last practice
IT HIT ME….. the words
I trust in you
I trust in you
Healer – Kari Jobe
God is walking me through
and the words – I trust you
Then I’m driving home after practice
and I am telling my daughter about
the moment when I realize what I am singing
and just before I say the words
a song on the radio ….I hear
I will trust in you
Just as I’m about to say
I TRUST IN YOU!!!
then it continues …..
Whatever will come my way
Through fire or pouring rain
We won’t be shaken
No we won’t be shaken
Whatever tomorrow brings
Together we’ll rise and sing
That we won’t be shaken
He is telling me what to say to myself
When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
I may struggle with this thing for all my days
but if It pulls me each time closer and closer to the Lord
then I will wear the words
AFRIAD BUT I WILL OVERCOME IN CHRIST
just like He wears my name like a banner on His arm
HE IS MY DEFENDER!

Thank you Mary!! I want to live fearless
Hi Starla! This is a beautiful post. My One Word for the year is Fearless. I have a few fears that have snagged me for years and the Lord’s been faithful to continually whisper into my ear… “When you are afraid, put your trust in Me.” Thanks for sharing this very encouraging word today!
And thanks for visiting my place today!
Blessings to you ~ Mary
@ Jen Thank you!! I love that statement ..fearless-faithful-regardless of cost!! I so connect with that! Thank you friend for stoppin by!
This is absolutely beautiful!! I have heard the Father whisper the same…”Will you trust me?” & it pierces to the depth of my heart with pain, because He shows me all the ways that I hadn’t been.
Oh that we might be fearless ones, faithful ones, stepping forward regardless of the cost. I so connect with your heart in these words, friend.
Thank you for sharing them & for linking on UNITE today! ~ Jen

Good Morning, Starla-
I haven’t stopped by for awhile, but I am glad I did today. We all have something that we struggle with, so I thank you for reminding me to trust HIM with my own challenges. He is ENOUGH-always!
