Once Upon a Comfort Fortress...

Published by Twyla E. Brooks under on 11:19 PM
I will admit: I am a coward. I'm scared of new places, new people, new sounds, and new environments. I'm scared of change because that happens to be outside the comfortable and familiar walls of my comfort fortress.

Sometimes when Change come visits with Opportunity, I fear them. I feel rather rude and ungrateful about it. Here I am getting along quite well in my lovely castle, not really moving forward nor backward, and God sends me these two fine visitors whom I sometimes dread and turn away. Is that a way for me to greet what the Lord has sent me? Two visitors who will help grow me in His ways and build my character? The honest answer, is no. Yet here I sit worrying about it.

Change and Opportunity came by recently and soon I will embark on a quest with my brother and grandpa. I'm scared that my anxiety will flare up or that something will go wrong while we're away--cut off from all access to what I am familiar with. Yet many people have sent me a couple more travel buddies--Prayer and Encouragement. Although I'm still wary, it feels good to have those two walk across my draw-bridge and into the unknown with me as well as the Lord and my family. :)

My prayer is that I will put my trust in God, so that I may be at ease and enjoy the trip to its fullest.

Psalm 56:3, "Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You."

Psalm 73:26, "My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."

I just looked those up in my Bible and fine those verses very encouraging to me right now. ^^
