My heart is sad as I write this morning. I just got off the phone with my granny and she let me know that my gramps is failing quickly now. He's been refusing food due to nausea for a week now and not been able to drink much either. When we visited over the weekend, he could barely stay awake long enough to get a sentance out. It was the first time I've heard my granny cry. She is an extremely strong woman but losing the man you've been married to for 65 years, hurts so badly. Please be praying for strength for her during this life altering time. Her name is Betty.

Yesterday, as I read in Mark, God spoke to me so powerfully with a verse of His Word. As I've shared with you before, fear is a struggle and temptation for me but God has shown me that I must obey Him irregardless of my fear. In Mark 4:40 Jesus asked His disciples "Why are you so afraid? Have you no faith?" That question hit me like a ton of bricks - I wonder how many times that God has asked me the same thing. If I say that I am a woman of faith, then why do I fall to the temptation of fear? Fear comes from satan, not my sweet savior. I pray that each time you or I begin to fear, we will ask this question of ourselves and realize that when we are a children of God - whom shall we fear?

Have a great day defeating fear!
