A Place to Begin

A Place to Begin

Sometimes the challenges in front of us loom so large that we don’t know where to start. The weight of what needs to be accomplished seems to hold us in place, sapping our strength and paralyzing our ability to think. Fear has us in its hold. Recognizing fear’s presence, naming it, begins the process of releasing us from its power. We turn to the Lord, humble ourselves before Him, and yield ourselves to His care and guidance. He reassures us of His presence, and fears begin to dissipate as He renews our hearts and minds.

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.—1 Peter 5:7

Prayer: Our Loving Father, where would we be without Your presence? Thank You for meeting us in the place where fear holds us captive. Thank You for releasing Your Spirit to minister to us at the point of our need. Thank You for showing us a place to begin anew. We come with grateful hearts in Jesus’ name, amen.
