I have created this blog in order to share my faith in Jesus Christ with others. My prayer is that these writings, based on God's Holy Word, will encourage Christians to love and serve others as Jesus Christ loves the church. Further, I will be praying that my words, through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, will reach non-believers who may be searching for meaning and purpose in their lives. May they find that Jesus Christ is the only source to fill the emptiness inside their hearts.

I Know Who Holds Tomorrow
Trust in God; trust also in me. John 14:1, NIV
"Jesus commanded His disciples to "trust in God; trust also in me."
"When I toss and turn in the middle of the night, worried and fearful over something that is impending in my life or the life of someone I love, I am comforted and calmed as I meditate on Who God is. It helps me plant my faith in Someone Who is bigger than my fears. I just fall back on Who God is and rest in Him. He cannot be less than Himself! And my God is God!
Next time you feel afraid, make up a list - not of your fears but of the characteristics of God. Find a Scripture verse or passage to substantiate each one as you reconsider your situation in light of Who God is. Then, if you feel it would be helpful to list your fears, make sure beside each one you write down the attribute of God that applies. The secret to peace lies in your focus." Anne Grahan-Lotz
Many years ago, I was plagued with fear and worry. I'm not saying that I never worry or become fearful these days, because I am human. However, when I allow myself to think on God's promises and recall how far He has brought me on my journey of faith, then fear and worry become secondary to faith and trust. My life is in His hands and that gives me comfort and peace.
I posted Anne Graham-Lotz's thoughts above because they express my own heart so much where fear is concerned. Below the prayer you will also find an old song entitled, "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow." What a comfort to know that God is in control and we can have peace in knowing He loves us enough to do what is always best in our situations.
Prayer: Dear Father, thank You for a restful night and a beautiful day. Help each of us to walk in your strength, with your wisdom, and to allow ourselves to be guided by the Holy Spirit. Thank You that we do not have to hold fear in our hearts, rather, the assurance that You are in every situation that we face. We pray this in the name of our dear Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen.
