Anna rushed into my room yesterday morning. She had woken up early from a bad dream.
“I was falling off the edge of the earth,” she told me in a panicked voice.
“That won’t happen,” I assured her. “The earth is round. You can’t fall off the edge”
“I love you Daddy!” she replied immediately.
And just like that, the fear was gone.
Words from a trusted Father, who loves her, gave my 6-year-old peace.
Words from our trusted Father who loves us, should do the same.
Psalm 56:3-4 says
“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise—
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?”
In a world where truth is sometimes hard to find, I find myself needing a grounding that only comes from Scriptures like these.
What are you doubting today? What has you fearful? Your Father, who loves you, has something to say to help.
