when fear comes knocking, send Hope out swinging

This morning, I awoke to a crushing sense of fear, tinged with an anxiety I don’t usually feel.

An appointment to renegotiate our mortgage, something I have done every few years, was first on my to do list this morning. And as I hustled and bustled to get the paperwork I needed together, it hit me.

Fear got in because I let my praise guard down.

I started the day focusing on what I might lack, instead of Who is in my corner.

Today, I am running again into and to the Word for a hope filled jolt for my system. Here are the Words He brought to my attention from His word to meet my need.

2 chronicles 28-20 MSG

jeremiah 1-19 msg

John 14-27 MSG

Copy of John 14-27 MSG

Philippians 4-13 MSG

And even stranger, but obviously His timing? The power is out in the whole block where my bank and fave coffee shop are located. So my appointment got rescheduled. 

Because God reminded me that this is the 7th year for our family dealing with a particular situation, and this year is to be the year of wonder and jubilee for us. For His plans are to knock our socks off as we see His hand at work in our lives.

When the seemingly impossible encounters the God of all things possible, radical change cannot but follow! (more on that tomorrow, after I refuel on much needed “white space” as I rest in His Presence.)
