Saved by God-part 6

 

He does what's best for those who fear Him--hears them call out, and saves them.

Psalms 145:19

The day my brother died; fear was deeply rooted in my heart, mind, and soul. 

I didn't always recognize it. It seeped through in various ways, mostly relationships. 

The day he died, invisible made it's final secure hold. The pain inside was oozing into every crook and cranny that existed inside of me. When I had children, the fear of loosing them tragically was at times overwhelming. I had to learn to call out to God to save me from my fear. I needed Him to see me. I needed Him to show me how to surrender my children, and husband.

I needed to see Him! To me, God was invisible, and as long as He was invisible in my life how could I trust Him with my fear?

Just recently, I watched my son and daughter go through an experience that could have ended very poorly. It was enough to bring that fear of loosing my child back to the surface, and I had to remember to surrender. I had to call out to God to save them, and to save me from the intense fear that I was under. I needed to see that He was visible to my heart to move me through the moment. And, he did.

This is the end of my journey. Thank you for joining me. God restores, renews, and revives. He brings our pain into beauty. He crushes the enemy. He gives me the authority to live in His name, work in His name, speak in His name, and do all things in His name because I am His child. Visible to Him, complete and holy in His sight.

This is true for you too!
