Fear is not from God

6 10 2008

Thoughts that are bouncing around my cranium tonight.

  • Self centered fear keeps us from reaching for our dreams.
  • The fear that we will fail causes us to remain stagnant.
  • Fear that I cannot attain what I want causes me not to try.
  • Fear deceives me into thinking I must be in control.
  • It takes courage to follow Jesus.
  • Trust does not come easily to me.

Broken Dreams

As children bring their broken toys with tears for us to mend,

I brought my broken dreams to God because He was my friend.

But then, instead of leaving Him in peace to work alone

I hung around and tried to help with ways that were my own.

At last, I snatched them back and cried, “How can you be so slow?”

“My child”, He said, “what could I do? You never did let go.”

  • It takes courage to trust.
  • It takes trust to let go and let God.
  • As long as you can still make fog on a mirror you can still grow.
