what i love: that it makes me rely on the Lord.
i've heard that fear is a great motivator. it pushes people to try all sorts of new things. it allows people to go beyond themselves, and get out there for some new adventures.
well i'm getting a little bit fearful about this trip i'm leaving for tomorrow. i'm taking my young life girls to wilderness ranch for a week. that's right. getting out to the wilderness to be a part of God's creation for a week. without bathroom. without bed. without security blanket. without, well, without distraction.
it's pretty scary, but i'm thinking that it's gonna be great. i'm pretty out of practice with the whole hiking thing...but i know the Lord will provide some comfort. so i found some fear verses....and i'll pretty much be reciting these until we get done with the mountain. so wish me luck...
serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling.
the Lord confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them. my eyes are ever on the Lord, for only he will release my feet from the snare.
who may ascend the hill of the Lord? who may stand in his holy place? he who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to an idol or swear by what is false.
psalm 56.3 (message)
when i get really afraid i come to you in trust.
