"We Need Not Live in Fear"

I don't think it was coincidence that one of my Facebook friends decided to post this quote the other day. It was exactly what I needed to read. Isn't cool how that happens? Tender mercies.

The Lord wants to help us in our lives. He won't make our choices for us, but He will guide us if we let Him. I am learning to quiet my fears by opening my heart to the Lord and His Spirit. Sometimes fear can consume me. As I learn to breathe and trust the Lord, my fears shrink. I am not perfect at it, there are times I still get consumed, but He is teaching me how to overcome. His love is so much greater than my fears!

My sister had a baby last night! It is incredible how little people cause you to look at the world so differently. He is a sweet spirit straight from heaven. We are so grateful that he is the newest member of our family!

For some reason, the last few days I have had to remind myself to just breathe. Sometimes it just happens. I start to remind myself of all the things I'm not perfect at, the things I could improve on and I get overwhelmed. I get stressed and start to feel myself close off.
I try to remind myself just to breathe. That's the only thing I needto do. Just breathe.
Life is good!
