Fear & Hope
From the pages of Embrace Grace…
From the moment we’re born, we’re afraid: of loud noises, of cold air, of falling. While trust begins to build as the months go by, new fears surface: of dark rooms, of meeting strangers, of being alone.
We conquer those fears as we mature, but at the deepest level we never forget them. Old fears continue to color our emotional responses and produce feelings of doubt and uncertainty.
For all those dark times, here’s a word of hope: God meets us where we are. Even if we aren’t looking in his direction, he is always looking in ours.
“From his dwelling place he watches all who live on earthhe who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do.” Psalm 33:14-15
Daily Reflection: How might it comfort and encourage you today to know that God has his loving eyes on you?
