HE will watch

i fear much.  i fear missing the Lord.  i fear wrong decisions.  i fear not hearing right.  i fear the state of the world.  i fear ending up just like those who have slipped and fallen away.  i fear moving beyond this place and season.  i fear staying where i am.  i fear not living up to my full potential.  i fear trying too hard.  i fear being rejected.

my fear has been driving me — has been slowly robbing life and joy from me.  and i don’t want it anymore.  it’s tiring.

so i’m at the same place i feel myself always going back to while always wondering why i haven’t quite learned this lesson fully: lift my eyes to the One who has proven Himself trustworthy and find peace in the words He’s given me:

I lift up my eyes to the hills—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;

indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
The LORD watches over you—
the LORD is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm—
he will watch over your life;
the LORD will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore.

  1. Oh, how He loves you, my Louissa Elaine. If I love you so much, and have so much confidence in His plans for you, how inestimable is His love and confidence in His plan might He be? Immensely!

    He will cause you to hear, He will guide your steps, He will cause you to desire Him. Just say, “Here I am, Lord. Work in my life, in my heart, and in my mind.” He does the rest.

    I rejoice at the thoughts of all He will do in your precious life!
