It is the little things. Like stepping out onto my patio this morning and seeing a patch of early morning sun …and capturing it on my phone. Thank You for the sun peeking through the trees this morning. Thank You for the moisture free moments on my patio.
Thank You for the scripture that is deeply embedded in my mind. It comes up in the wee hours when I awaken in a fear state … “Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil for you are with me.” My shadow of death is in those moments immobilizing fear … As I move through those states I will fear no evil … You are with me. I choose to remember that You are with me.
Fear is an interesting word … the Hebrew word yare’ has as one of its meanings “To stand in awe of, be awed.” so when I allow myself to be immobilized by that fear in the night, I am giving awe to that fear, that lie, that evil. I do not have to be afraid of my fear, or any other extremely unpleasant feeling state … God is with me. My Creator is with me.
One of the immobilizers is that my mindset will never change, that I will remain stuck in this state forever … HaHa … that’s a lie!! And as I choose to remember that You are with me, You, my Creator, the mindset is shifting … I put my focus, my sense of awe onto You … and the sensations shift …
