Let go of the Fear and have Faith

"Commit your way to the Lord; trust in Him, and He will act." 
Psalm 37:5

In life we have daily fears; fear of rejection, fear of not being good enough, fear of what others might think of us. Those fears can stop us from living in the presence of the greatness God has made us for. 

When I was a freshman in high school I was in an Ag class where we built wood chairs. These weren't just any chairs, they we're the cool wood chairs that you often see on patios or front porches. This class was designed to introduce us to shop safety and wood working among other things. I was fearful of using the tools because I had never handled them before and felt less than because my pears seemed to know exactly what to do while I was a bit clueless. 

During those 45 minute sessions over that second semester of my ninth grade year I learned more than how to use power tools. I learned that the more I tried the better I became. I learned to measure twice and cut once. And I learned to believe in myself and let go of the fear that was holding me back.

When fear stops you in your daily steps think about all that can go right and learn to lay your trust in God's plans for you. When I think back to that 14 year old me, I had no clue that I would someday use the skills I learned in that Ag class and enjoy and find peace in building pieces of furniture. Looking back I'm thankful I let go of the fear and let God work through me!

Father God, thank you for loving me more than I could ever know.  May I put all of my dependence and trust in you God - our mighty and sovereign Lord. 
May I let go of all of my current fears. I know that you hold them Jesus and are far bigger, mightier and greater than any fears I have now or that tomorrow might bring.
