Afraid

‘Quieting the Noise in My Head’

This morning I had a conversation with God. A ‘truth in the inward parts’ moment.

” Father I want to believe for this to workout but I’m afraid of being disappointed. Show me how to do this.”

I’ve felt this way before – many times. This is the first time I’ve ever said it to God. I guess what I am saying is I am afraid that He probably won’t help me to get the end result that I want. The truth is I am afraid that after investing the faith to believe, I may be disappointed that He did not agree with my way. Disappointed in God? Quite likely. But, who wants to say that? News flash! He already knew. He knew the moment I started battling with those thoughts.

For some reason, the shower is a place where I process a lot of my thoughts. Maybe it’s the sound of the water. As I quieted my heart there, I heard a soft voice – in my spirit.

” What if you trusted that the way it works out is the way it’s supposed to be?”

Isn’t it comforting to know that God is not mad at me- mad at you? He gets my fragile faith and all that comes with being human. If I want His help processing an emotion, I just need to ask. Now I am on the journey of learning how to walk this out today and the next day. He made my day!

As I got in my car heading out to work, this is what started playing: [Micah Tyler]

” There’s never been a moment I was not held inside Your arms

And there’s never been a day when You were not who You say You are”

Can you trust that the way it works out is the way it was meant to work out? A sure cure for that debilitating fear of disappointment.

  1. Wow I know exactly what you’re saying. Since I have started seriously working on my relationship with the Lord I have become more “fearful” that things I pray for will not go according to my way because I know all things happen according to HIS will. Like you said though, I just have to have faith to trust that he knows what’s best. Good post!

  2. God gives us what we would have asked for, if we know everything he knows, I heard a Pastor said this and it never left me. If we only knew what he know, but we have all been there, we are looking through the human lens. But what a God.
