It happened again just last night.
I'm sick of it really and it makes me wake up tired .. still.
It wasn't there when I crawled in...
 Did it wake me totally?  I'm not sure.
But it keeps happening over and over again.
Those dreaded what if''s.  
My greatest fears creep in after I close my eyes and the light goes black.
I roll over... semi-conscious... trying to shake it off and pray it off.
Sometimes outloud.  
In the morning when day breaks and the light returns... the worries lift and 
I know I have nothing to fear.

"God does not give us the spirit of fear but of power and of love and of sound mind" 2 Tim 1:7....wish the ole Devil could get that and leave us alone...But I do not think he is going to.... Love your 5 minute writing.. I am going to have to try that...Blessings!

I know the feelings, Lea! "What if's" can drown you, especially in the darkness of the night when there's nothing else to take your mind away from it. Just remember this, no matter what "what if" might come true, the Lord is already there to walk with you through it all. Most never come true. Some do. And some are worse than our worst "what if's." But on the other side, I can truly testify to the fact that He saw me through. That's what is so beautiful about His grace! It is ALWAYS sufficient!

I will be praying for you. Just tell the enemy to leave you alone, you will not accept the fear he is trying to put in your mind in the name of Jesus. He will have to flee because your covered by the blood of Jesus, and he cannot cross that blood line. Praise God.
Love you, sister

You are a warrior princess Lea and that enemy has no place in your life. He is defeated. Praise God.

Hope you have a BLESSED DAY.

I'll pray for you too-I also know that fear, but I know we are watched over by The One Who never sleeps or slumbers.

Anxiety....I recognize it well. Just keep praying it away. I found that what ever is bothering me I thank the Lord in advance for taking it away. Sometimes we do not know what it is...but the Lord does.

Lea Hi! Just doing some long-overdue visiting here. Hate to hear those fears creeping up on you. I know that feeling myself. I think we've talked about that before. Fear not for the Lord is with you, Lea. Some favorite verses of mine...

Isaiah 54:10
New International Version (NIV)
10 Though the mountains be shaken
and the hills be removed,
yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken
nor my covenant of peace be removed,”
says the Lord, who has compassion on you.

I'm going to pray for your peace...
