Praise Him

So I was making myself sick with anxiety about a conversation I was going to have today. I finally grew a pair and did it. God not only made the conversation better than I could have ever imagined, he has granted me amazing peace. Why do I doubt still?

Emily, I really hope you did not "grow a pair" because that's weird.

Praise the Lord for delivering us and being merciful, even though we fail to trust!

Romans 5:8-"...but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Because even with the people we love it's so hard to believe someone so loving and caring would ever spend a second on our feeble problems. But each time he says give it to me. Lean on me. We say no God I don't want to trust you. But like we are in relationships, the same is with God if we would only trust him then everything would be fine. But nooo. lol Congrats on growing a pair!

that's such a great feeling... that kind of relief is a blessing. with me it's the fear that leaves no room for remembering the feeling of that relief and the fact that the relief is legit and comes from a trustworthy source. there's a whole lot of mumbojumbo for ya :)

yay for good conversations. I'm so glad it worked out for you. Hey did you get my message about the wedding cake? O and I was definately pissed about the YMCA at first. Believe you me. My better attitude is totally God given
