What time I am afraid

"What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee." Ps. 56:3

This Bible verse is one we have taught to all our children. We remind them of it when they were afraid of a dream or the dark or a strange noise. Yet sometimes we forget this simple truth as ladies. We ladies tend to rely completely on our husbands or our independence and leave God out of it--until the very last moment. We forget that our Heavenly father wants to hear from us, when a bad dream happens, when our life is just a mess, when our heart is so broken-we can't even find the pieces. Sometimes we have fear that keeps us away from a time with God through prayer and Bible study. Often this same fear couples with pride and we can't admit when we are wrong. We refuse to say I am sorry, to the ones we love and most often to our Heavenly Father.

Do you wonder in worry, in fear of what tomorrow holds? Is your future uncertain because of circumstances you are going through? Do you understand that God wants to hear your fears, He wants to hold you in His hands. Too many times we lose ourselves in a "good song" when we should lose ourselves in prayer or our Bible study but always in the Lord who cares for us.

Rely on the Lord, ladies, for your strength and comfort. Our husbands and/or loved ones may let us down--pain may come along with disappointment--but having God as our focus, will help us mend our hearts a lot faster. 1 Peter 5:7 states it very simply - "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."
