Shaking in my boots!!!



Have I told y'all that I have a new friend?
I call her a nutritionist 'cause she knows about all there is to know about nutrition and vitamins and supplements.  She's an RN....and she's BRILLIANT....and ever so humble.  She gives all the credit of her knowledge and abilities to our Lord and Savior.  This lady has prayed with me and over me several times.  She has helped to uncover my problem with being so fearful. Just a day after I recently met with her, this little "sign" appeared on my Facebook wall.......

And, immediately following that post was this one by Joyce Meyer.....

You may feel afraid, but you don't have to be afraid. 
You can keep going forward with your knees shaking and heart pounding and say,
 "God is with me. 
He will never leave me nor forsake me, 
and I am going to do everything that I need to do. 
I will not fear. 
What can man do to me?" 
(Psalm 118:6)
~~~Joyce Meyer~~~

Then, later on this one.....



Yes....HE is definitely working on me in this area of my life!!!

Dear Heavenly Father....You know my heart because You made me.  
You know all of my fears and with Your help I know that I can conquer them.  
Please forgive me of my shortcomings and my doubts and fill me with Your peace and lead me with Your gentle guiding hand.  I love you so much, God, and thank You for all You do for me....
and for putting up with me!!!
In Jesus' Most Precious and Holy Name....
AMEN!!!

Blessings,

Deb

  4. I've been doing an indepth study on FAITH for the past 5-6 months. It has been quite an eye opener and filled with inspiration. One thing I learned is that faith and fear cannot exist together. This has been something I've been working on for a long time. I know you have tons of faith and that any fears you have will eventually be removed. Your scriptures and quotes are so true! I love you dearly and appreciate our friendship.

    I'm still not posting on my blog, but hope to be doing so soon. HUGS
