Fear


A couple nights ago I was sure I was in the early stages of labor. And instead of being excited, I was terrified and feeling panic. This was not part of my labor plan. But I couldn't make the nervous feelings go away. Finally I got some rest and my contractions went away by 3AM. But I realized that I need to get get myself together, and rely more strongly on the ONE who will get me through this. I KNOW labor will be hard work. I don't want God to take that away. But I want to face it with peace, and grace and the knowledge that He will not leave me and He can give me the strength to get though it. So please pray that with me and for me in the next few weeks...

Praying for you, Heidi! That theme of fear has been rearing its head in my world a lot lately, along with that amazing truth that I have One whom I *can* fear, and when my fear is in Him, He will remove all false fears. I'll pray that He will do this for you!
