Face Your Fears. Find Your Center.

This morning, Hannah Banana's desire to hang with me superseded her fear of the vacuum cleaner. Where I walked, she followed and patiently waited for me as I attempted to remove all evidence of boy-dirt and shedding dogs.

Has your belief in the goodness of God superseded your fear of facing something painful? If it has, you're on a great path! Like Hannah, you're willingness to follow does not go unseen. And God is pleased with your willingness to remain by His side at all costs.

Tell God how you feel today. As you open your heart you'll see more and more evidence of His goodness. Give your belief in that goodness time to grow, and then experience firsthand, how perfect Love cast out fear.

It was important for me to let Hannah know I was pleased that she longed for my company in the midst of something scary in her world. Consider how much more God wants you to know how pleased He is with your willingness to seek freedom from what causes pain and fear in your world.

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. (Psalm 139:23)

 

What do you face that freaks you out? If you feel anxious, but can't put your finger on why, ask God to reveal the cause. If you know the cause, but can't seem to find a still point in your soul, consider trying what I do when I get like this:

I lie down on my back in a quiet place. Take slow, deep breathes, and meditate on the name Jesus. Seriously, when I do this, I'm always centered because I'm reminded so gently that He is my center.

 

You are not alone,

Wendy

I Never Knew That About Myself! Adventures in Christ.

Last April we got our second Labrador Retriever. Our first dog, Jasmine, is black. The new addition is yellow, so I named her Hannah--Hannah Banana.

This past weekend Hannah went on her first family camping trip. On the last day, my husband announced it was time to gently drop her off of the boat dock because "she needs to know she can swim."

"Are you crazy?" (I lost the battle.)

He dropped her into the water and just as I feared, she freaked out. She swam underneath the dock, placed both paws over a bar, and waited for her rescue. It took some coaxing, but my hubby finally got her to swim to dry land before dropping her off the dock again.

Each time it got easier. We clapped and cheered as she swam to us. Fifteen minutes later, Michael was throwing sticks out into the lake and she had embraced her inner-retriever. The transformation was amazing. Hannah Banana was doing what she was born to do--after all, her daddy was a rescue lab.

I couldn't help but think of the time I asked God who He created me to be. How frightening and exciting it was when He began to reveal the real me to me.
