Prayer: Overcoming Fears

Dear God, I run to You today! I lift up all wives who struggle with fear. I ask that You help us not to be afraid anymore. Help us to trust You more with our lives, with our families, with our finances, with our everything.

FEAR: One Of My Greatest Weaknesses

One of my greatest weaknesses is fear. I have struggled with fear my entire life.  I am often times paralyzed by my fear, and I limit things that I could do based on the strong presence of fear.  I allow it to control me. Although I struggle with fear, I have grown more confident over the years!  This is something I am very proud of!  I can see the different ways I have listened and leaned on Christ’s strength to empower me over fears grip. For those of you who also fight with fear as it cripples your freedom, I hope this quote encourages you: “We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face… we
