“Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord: Refection by Jane Pimenta of Prayer Aid

 But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in the Lord.  Jeremiah 17:7

“Fear corrodes our confidence in God’s goodness.” Max Lucado

“Deep, contended joy comes from a place of complete security and confidence [in God] – even in the midst of trial.” Charles R. Swindoll

God is constantly trying to take us to higher and higher levels of faith and one of the ways we allow Him to increase our faith is during times of trial and bouts of fears.  When we are walking in difficult times, and we constantly keep saying “Jesus you take care of everything” and then let go and let God have a free hand.   It’s not easy, it’s a constant battle, I often find that the more I turn to God and say “You take care of everything” the fear and anxiety increases…..this WILL be our constant fight, but during this fight God is leading us to victory over fear and anxiety, He is letting us see how He irons things out, it could happen immediately or it may take time, but it will work out.  Let us try today, to fight off fear and have confidence in our God’s love for us.  (Outstanding reflection, Jane!  I also find myself in this situation and it’s really a challenge.  At the end of the day, only God can get us through, most of the times by the intercession of Mother Mary, St Joseph, St Michael the Archangel and all of the Angels and Saints).  Cynthia Abegail for New World
