“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” Psalm 32:7
The last few days have been hard and fear came rushing in like the cold temperatures that have hit Texas. It started with the massive 100+ car accident that happened here and spiraled from there. One son headed out on a fun road trip with friends and another heads out in a few weeks. What if this had happened to them? Accidents can happen at anytime, but this triggered irrational fears over even the shortest drives. I knew this was not sustainable and I needed to tell the Lord the truth about how I was feeling. He is a safe place to hide and a good listener.
It has been a struggle, but peace comes once again when I “take every thought captive” and choose not to dwell on what could happen. Music that has words of truth helps too. You would not believe the songs that have played just now by “random”. This world offers plenty of opportunities to live in fear, but I do not have to take them. Besides, it would ruin the days and I would miss what is true. I also have a ukulele concert to listen to given by one sweet little girl.
