I found this post completely intriguing and I wanted to share it with my readers as well! I have experienced this in my lifetime, sad to say. It is horrible to endure this type of abuse. Maybe it will “speak” to some of my readers.
The alarm went off this morning at it’s usual time. 6am. I hit snooze as I normally do because I know I have time for another 5 min to just lay in bed before I have to get up to face the day.
As I lay there, a thought popped into my head….”July 7th….something about that date rings familiar….not quite sure what it is…..ooooh wait a min….yes I do remember.” It was something I’d actually choose to forget but it’s still there. Still a reminder every year. This was the day my husband walked out…suitcase in hand….three years ago.
Was it really three years???!!
Time flies when you’re having….
Well, time just flies.
It stayed with me today. I even heard a song on the radio coming home from work and I chose not to change the channel. Almost to test my strength as a gauge on how far I’ve come. I listened and even sang part of the lyrics. Shocked! AND PROUD! Why? No tears. I’m growing…no, I’VE GROWN!
I wonder what next year will be like. Will I remember again next year or the year after that? I don’t know. What I do know is that this date will come around every year without fail. I’ll have to deal with it for 24 hours and then it will be gone.
Another victory of a date that signifies an end. Or maybe it signifies a beginning!
One day….it will be just a date and I won’t recall the significance at all. One day….
Those who trust in the Lord do not have to worry or be afraid.
God is not the author of fear! Fear is putting your faith into the “What If’s” of life rather than God!
Did you know? A baby is born with only fearing two things….fear of falling and of loud noises. This means that we have created our own fears.
There are 4 common fears in life:
- Fear of the unknown
- Fear of loss
- Fear of failure
- Fear of rejection
There are 2 truths we can learn from our biggest fears:
- What I fear reveals what I value the most.
- What I fear reveals where I trust God the least.
How can you lose the spirit of fear? Trust in His Word and who He says you are to Him. Focus on Him. Trust Him. He will light the way for you and show you His plans for your life.
