Ephesians 1-4

Can’t get past the idea of the wind constantly blowing …..
Jeff’s comment ‘that what is unseen is scary stuff’ ……
hearing ‘be still’……
reading and praying this morning the whole of the Ephesian 1-4 for my blogging buddies…..
wishing we could encourage each other with more than cyber words and then it hits me just how very powerful prayers are …..especially these.

You have impacted my journey deeply and I believe you have impacted others.......


Also....last nite my husband and I watched the movie First Knight and this one scene just really caught me. It is right after Lancelot has run the gauntlet, succeeding where so many before him have failed and King Arthur asks him 'how?'...Lancelot replies that in fear many turn back when perhaps the better thing is to go forward.....I am always about turning back, running away...maybe beginning to learn to 'go forward'...?

what is it that you fear the most?
I believe fear is a common thread in all humanity.

I don't know what you are going through I just want to encourage you and say persevere.

I fear loss, especially loss of any boy/man in my family. I keep praying that I can truly surrender them to Him...but can't say I am there yet...possibly the fear is less??? But I do feel we make a lot of choices out of fear..Thank God He didn't.

Sometimes God tells us not to fear, and some people (like Abraham) were commended because they feared. Anxiety, on the other hand, is very different.

Perhaps the Lancelot story would bear some truth if it could be received as an analogy. Then it would not be said that Lancelot was bold and courageous, but that he was a man of faith.

Of course, desperate acts like adultery are not the fruit of faith -although it could be said by the masses that they were 'daring' and 'courageous'.
