What are you missing out on…


A few weeks ago I had the chance to have dinner with a wonderful sister in the Lord.  At the close of our evening she prayed fervently for me and for my walk with the Lord.  As she prayed the wind was howling and my car was literally shaking…  What was going through my mind? Fear!  I was terrifed that the wind was going to turn into something more severe and I wanted to run for cover, to hide.  The Lord had appointed my dear friend to speak words of truth to me,  for me to deposit into my soul, and I missed out on it completely because of fear…

Prior to knowing that Evelyn would be joining our family I remember contemplating “Should we have another baby?  Why test fate… we have two healthy children, shouldn’t we call it a day.”  Even after becoming pregnant I was fearful many times during my pregnancy that something wasn’t okay with the baby, I remember telling close friends of my fears…  And here we are now, I look at my sweet precious angel, who, to the world, is not perfect… but oh is she perfect to me, she has been perfectly formed by the Master Crafstman and I am in complete awe of His workmanship…  Can you imagine what I would have missed out on if fear stopped our family from growing… I can’t imagine my life without Evelyn.  I can’t imagine Callen and Annabelle without Evelyn.  We are a complete and perfect family.

Lord, help me to not be driven by fear.  Your Word says that perfect love casts out all fear, let me receive this truth and walk in it!  Let me walk in freedom!

With that, I ask… What are you missing out on…
