Taking Care Of My Worries

Dear God,

As I go over my quiet time Word for today, I realize that the psalmist, David, had so much tremendous faith in You. It is quite hard to imagine not being afraid when a person has enemies or detractors like the wicked and powerful ones that David had. But he remembered that his strength and salvation were in You alone.

Lord, as a Mom, I often find myself afraid. I worry about the things my DS and DD will face in this world. I get concerned that I really don't know how to be a good Mother; or I'm not also sure if my best is good enough. There are so many things that tempt me to fear.

Please forgive me in my weakness, Lord. Please help me to remember always where my strength and salvation come from. Give me a heart like David's -- a heart that is always after Yours. Help me to say it along with him, "Whom shall I fear... Of whom shall I be afraid?" Thank You, Lord.

The LORD is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27:1


  1. This is a beautiful post. Thanks for sharing your heart. I feel the exact same way. My daughter is in her last year of school with least "required" school. At times I feel as though I am staring into the abyss. I have to remind myself constantly that God will take care of all the details...still is is a scary time. Nice to know that another mom is thinking these same things.

    Bless your heart!

  2. Hi Joyce, thanks for your message. It truly is a challenge to be a Mom, but at the same time an honor to become one. Thankfully, we have an awesome God who puts everything in order. Let us both allow Him to lead us, as we continue to help our kids grow in Him.

    Blessings to you and your family. You continue to inspire me as you face each new day trusting God with your heart. =)
