God wants us to embrace faith and reject fear. But how? Subscribe below and we'll show you over the next 30 days.

I am an adult child of ritual abuse. I am dealing with the memories now. I did before some of them but I thought they were just “false memories” but the Lord has showed me that they are real. God’s Word is always a comfort to me. My grandmother led me to Jesus when I was very little about two or a little older, before three probably because I told the satanist that I belonged to Jesus which only made them mad and I got punished somehow. I think or I believe God had my father move us just before I was five across country and it stopped. But they had drugged me so it was so hard to remember the memories even when I was little. You are in sort of a twilight wake and you don’t remember it logically just in pieces. What I fear is remembering all of it. What I remember I record or write down hoping that my therapist could help me. But she said she really can’t that her skills are not that great. So I need help in getting the right person to work with so I can be healed. My fear is I won’t find someone. I am in a rural area so it is hard finding specialized people who take Medicare and a medical or Medicaid—-I have both. I am so tired of being alone on this. You may not even get this. It is on a back day. I started late.

What do you fear right now? How does this verse impact how you approach your situation?
Sometimes i am very worried about myresponsabilities before God.
This verse tells me that "My God is with me in every situation and I must seek always for him."

God doesn't want you to be worried about those responsibilities. He wants you to enjoy them and trust Him in the outcomes. No about this peace and enjoyment isn't natural, but is possible through His Spirit.

This pandemic provides an opportunity for the scriptures that I have learned including “be anxious for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God” to become more than simply words on a page in the Bible but a real opportunity for me to trust God and walk out my faith. Dear God please help me to truly trust in you during this time. Forgive me for having been so fearful and help me to represent you well.

What my greatest fear is getting rid of items that my husband will miss if and when he comes back home. He is currently in a nursing facility in Chicago where is sister lives. I'm staying at his house in Indy. His sister is his P.O.A. which stands for power of attorney. He got really upset when I started arranging things to be more safe at home before he left 6 months ago.
