We all have fears.
Fear of spiders.
Fear of heights.
Fear of failure.
Fear of public speaking.
In the process of trying to conceive, growing our family, wanting to become parents in a physical sense, fears seem to run the full gamut.
Will I ever be pregnant?
Maybe I wouldn't be a good mother?
Will I have to live a lifetime never getting to raise my own child...children?
Can I be happy for others when they get pregnant, give birth to their children, etc?
It seems that in the process of "waiting," the fears seem to increase and grow....
Are all the things that God promised me REALLY HIS promises or just MY wishful thinking?
Is He TRULY faithful to keep His promises to me?
What if His plans for my life are not what I want?
What if He asks more of me than I can give....want to give?
These fears can sometimes grip my heart into a vise so tight that I feel hopeless.
And in those moments, I remind myself...
of the fact that He has always been faithful to me...
2 Peter 3:9
The Lord isn't really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.
Do you have fears that you struggle with often?
