Whenever I am afraid,
I will trust in You. Psalm 56:3

Just by turning on the radio or t.v. we hear of frightening events taking place not only in other countries, but America as well. No place on this earth is exempt from murders, illnesses, violations, etc. Hearing of such things day after day might cause many to live in fear. I sometimes think back to when I was a young girl and reading and hearing about the days when people could leave their windows and doors open without fearing harm or danger. The children in the neighborhood played together and parents looked after them, whether they belonged to them or not. Long gone are those days.

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7

God does not want us to live in fear. As believers, we know this. Strange and scary things are happening all around us and if we fail to remember who we are to depend on and completely trust, fear could overtake us.

It is God we trust. He is our Protector. He has us in His hands. There is no safer place to be than in the hands of the Creator.

Be blessed.

Some people start their day with a cup of coffee, but prayer starts my day. After all, my alarm clock did not wake me. A cup of coffee did not wake me. My Father woke me up this morning. He gave me the breath I needed to open my eyes to see this new day. 

I can set aside any time of the day to pray, but I prefer early morning prayer when it is peaceful and no distractions. Prayer refreshes my soul. It gives me the extra strength I need to face whatever might come my way. A popular commercial from the past, says"Milk, it does a body good. Pass it on." I say, "Prayer, it does a body good. Pass it on."

Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed. Mark 1:35

Be blessed.
