For this Walk with Him Wednesday, Ann Voskamp of @ Holy Experience has asked us to share Scripture we've been memorizing.
The older I get, the harder it is to memorize but I'm determined to not let that stop me. I need to do this now more than ever.
And besides, I've stated it repeatedly on Heart Choices ...I am a life long learner.
If I have to share one emotion that I struggle with most in my life, I would have to say it would be FEAR.
I used to listen to Zig Ziglar tapes in my car on my way to work. I well remember the acronym Zig used for fear:
As I recall things I worried about in the past, the majority of them never occurred. Such wasted moments spending precious time fearing the future unknown.
My good friend Terri has often reminded me over the years that most of what we worry about never happens. Terri is one of those people who strives to live in the moment and enjoy each day to its fullest.
Which brings me to my memory verse of Scripture:
The phone rings. My immediate fleshly response is ...what now?
But I glance down at Isaiah 41:10 and ...remember.
God is with Debbie. Debbie does not need to fear. He will strengthen Debbie and help her. The Lord God Almighty will uphold Debbie with His righteous right hand.
I answer the phone and continue my day knowing that ...I have nothing to fear.
