I Need an Intervention

Confession: I worry about my kids. Three beautiful young adult kids. I fear for them, for their future, for their health, for their relationships, and for each one different things in different areas. Sometimes I am consumed with fear and worry.

There are times when I allow my thoughts to run their course, and they become a mighty, rolling river flowing away from the One who is trustworthy and true. My fretting betrays the One who is sovereign over all.  The temptation is to despair. I am prone to forget that there is a God in heaven who loves my children more than I could ever imagine.

I know that God is for me. I get that. But, in all honesty I sometimes question His goodness toward my own children.

This an honest look at fear of the unknown where it concerns our kids. This was written by Terrie over at Gospel Apprentice.           We all fall victim to this at times I think, what matters is how we choose to handle these times of fear. Do we give it to God, or do we mull it over and chew on our fear and anxiety until it gives birth to a host of other issues such as dis-trust of God?

You can finish reading this great article here, http://gospelapprentice.com/2012/03/14/i-need-an-intervention/. If you like what you read at Terrie’s site, why not tell her! Look around at the rest of her site and find some additional blessings there.

  1. I’m with both of you, friends. I think it’s good we be transparent and real… we struggle, especially when it comes to those closest and dearest to us. Thanks for sharing your honesty… God bless.

Luke 21:36 "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."
