Just a quick little thing

Hi my internet friends. :)

I sure wish I could tell you that I'm done with my holiday preperations, that my house looks fabulous, my children adorably dressed and getting along...but I can't.

Truth be told...I haven't had a shower yet, my dishwasher is going for the second time today, and I have two more loads of laundry before I can call it quits...

And I'm about to pop! I have to share with you something that totally transformed my thoughts today. It was in my Bible study this morning and when I say it knocked me flat on my face, I'm serious. Are you ready....

Fear cripples Faith, BUT Faith cripples Fear

For someone who suffers to live free of the stronghold of fear..that spoke volumes to me this morning.

We both have lots to do, so let's get off this computer and get back to it okay?

See you later in the week!

LOVE the reminder about fear and faith. I needed it today. Merry Christmas, Steph!

LOVE that reminder. There are so many times I realize that my motives are based in fear and I need to go to God in prayer to re-evalutate.

Merry Christmas girl!

Leah said...

Deep!! I needed to be reminded of that. Thanks so much and Merry Christmas!


Patty said...

Oh thank you for that word today! It has been a rough day for my brother and myself but God gave me this song in the shower this afternoon..Then Came the Morning!

Faith cripples Fear..Amen!!

Love you,

John Hagee always says when fear knocks at the door, let faith answer it. Love your Blog.

Girl I love that but....That is the kicker. I always heard the first part but it is not complete without the second. Very cool.

Much love,

Merry Christmas!

Needing this Word, Steph. Yes. Faith cripples fear. Oh I am needing that!

As for the table conversations on my post, it is a hard row to hoe, but when we face situations like that we can hide or speak out--but either way prayer will avail much!


PS I hope it's ok, I am adding you to my sidebar. I find that I can keep up better with folks if I have a reminder on my sidebar of a current post!
