Sorry there was no blog post yesterday. It was Joe’s first day of school, and things were pretty hectic around here! 🙂
First of all, the school is some distance from where we live, and the bus service won’t be available for another week…so I had to take him, and pick him up. Due to miscalculations of how much time it would take in comparison with traffic, I ended up being in the car for 4 1/2 hours yesterday between coming and going! Needless to say, I didn’t get much else done; hence…no post.
Today was better-at least time wise this morning-thank the Lord!
I drew this from my Promise Box when I arrived back home from dropping him off at school.
“Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid.” -Isaiah 12:2
As many of you know, I have a little sign on my refrigerator that says: “DO IT AFRAID!”
Let me tell you…I did it afraid yesterday! I have not been behind the wheel of a car for over four years, due to an accident that happened. But yesterday, I had no other choice but to trust God, …and try not to be afraid! There was no one else to take my son to school-so I had to get behind the wheel, and let God do the driving…and He did!
There used to be an old saying…”Just do it!” But I added a little more to that phrase. I say: …”Don’t just do it…trust God…and then do it afraid!”
Here’s the poem that was with the promise:
“In God, I put my trust, I neither doubt nor fear, for man can never harm with God my Helper near!” -Unknown
Amen to that! Like it says in Phillipians 4:13…”I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.” So can you! So, trust God…and then DO IT AFRAID!
