Mantra Monday

Ever had those times in prayer where you say something to God, but then question it? 
Today I prayed a familiar prayer to follow His will for my life, no matter how scary…then I thought, what if I end up like Job, tested and tried so much I lose everything around me… 
Why did I even second guess it??? 
FEAR.
My mind immediately retracted the fear…
The only thing that should matter is my trust in the Lord. If I’m so fixed on losing something or failing before I’ve even tried, then I never really trusted God in the first place.  And if I have a soul full of questions, I can’t give my whole heart to Him. 
Prayer time ended simply.
Dear Lord, 
Quiet my soul so that I may hear you better.
Sometimes fear ends up consuming us before we even step one foot on God’s path for our life.
Don’t let the “what ifs” of the future determine your actions for today.

Below is one of my favorite worship songs at the moment…as well as an inspiration to this post.
