Hebrew 13:6 "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear"
Hello readers! Here I am posting again, on a Monday evening. I am sharing some of my lesson from church last night, and some art and a photo for the T Gang.
Last night at church we had a missionary who talked on the topic of "How To Overcome The Power of Fear", which is very timely. So many people in our world today are afraid of so many things: bad news, sickness, loneliness, failure, and even death. People are afraid of so many things either real or even imagined. Fear can cause physical and mental illnesses. Our missionary listed some ways to overcome the power that fear can have over us. I just wanted to share them with you.
How to overcome the power fear?
II Chron. 20: 3-19
1. See the Lord in prayer and fasting verses 3-4
2. Trust God's sovereignty verses 5-6
3. Trust God's faithfulness verses 7-9
4. Hear what God has to say (See what he says in his word, below) verses 15-17
5. Worship God even when afraid. verses 18-19
Their are 365 mentions of "Fear not" in the Bible. Here are a few:
For the fear of being alone: Is. 41:10 "Fear thou not; For I am with thee"
For the fear of bad news: Ps. 112:7-8 "He shall not be afraid of evil tidings, his heart is fixed trusting in the Lord
Fear of the devil or death: Heb. 2:14 "Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; 15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage."
I plan on doing a search for all the mentions of fear nots. There would be one for each day of the year. I hope you will do this search a long with me. Let me know what you think.
I am carrying on the theme of sunflowers again this week I am afraid. I have started a September Junk Journal , and guess what? It is sunflower themed! LOL
So, I am making this journal for myself as a journal to keep track of challenges
Here are a few photos:
|I am making the cover out of an old tablecloth and a file folder. It will be soft. I like soft covers rather than hard book covers.|
|I am using Dear Julie Julie digital "Frosted Sunflowers"|
|I found these papers at a craft sale cheap and will be using these papers in my journal.|
We went out to eat for our 55th anniversary, and of course I forgot to take photos. I hear you laughing, Elizabeth. LOL So, I took this photo of my warm ups of the left overs. Delicious. I ordered sausage & shrimp with pasta and pesto sauce at the Red Rock Canyon Grill. It was just as good the second day as when we ordered it in the restaurant! I didn't even know what pesto sauce was, but I do now, and love it. Elizabeth can I make it with the basil I froze? Would that be the same as fresh? Also, in the photo I have t bag sacks and loose tea. I was thinking of filling the bags ahead of time because I haven't been doing it as I go as I am usually not that patient when I want a cup of tea. It is still sitting on my dining room table; as I haven't done it yet. At least the photo is my ticket to the party over at Albred Book Lover where Elizabeth hostesses TSFT.
Well, that is it for today. Hope everyone has a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by and for your comments.
