当忧虑成倍增加时

2010 at 1:43 pm   |   by Carolyn Mahaney Filed under圣经中的女性身份|18luck外围投注Fear & Anxiety|母性

Mothers,我们有福音:我们不必害怕。18luck外围投注And yet we do.A lot.

Our mothering 18luck外围投注fears are conceived with our children.我们看到两条蓝色的线,我们很想担心。我们担心吃不好的东18luck外围投注西,lifting something heavy,sleeping in the wrong position.

Then our baby is born,我们担心她在子宫外的生活18luck外围投注,她在吃东西,睡觉,talking,行走,发展进步。

我们的孩子开始上学,我们担心他永远不会完成学业。18luck外围投注他会交朋友吗?make good grades,make something of himself?No sooner does high school start and we begin to worry 18luck外围投注about college.

我们担心孩子的健康18luck外围投注,他们的教育,their friends,最重要的是,the state of their souls.

But once our children leave home,找到一份工作,get married—然后我们可以停止担心,正确的??

不是那么快。不是和孩子们一起离开,new worries move in.In my case,I now have 16 people (including sons-in-law and grandchildren) to worry 18luck外围投注about instead of four!!

我的孙子孙女成长的世界比我抚养孩子的世界更可怕。

Mothers,we will never out-grow our need to trust God for our children.

但我们决不能超过神的信实。“the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who 18luck外围投注fear him,and his righteousness to children's children"“(Ps.103:17).

有什么可怕的吗??

2010 at 2:39 pm   |   by Carolyn Mahaney Filed under圣经中的女性身份|18luck外围投注Fear & Anxiety|母性

回到我的身边conversation at the party.After chatting a few more minutes,我朋友又问了我一个问题:“你认为恐惧对女人来说是一种18luck外围投注独特的诱惑吗?““

“Yes,我愿意,“I replied.圣经似乎证明了这一点。虽然所有的基督徒经常被要求相信上帝,women are specifically exhorted in 1 Peter 3:6:"不要害怕任何可18luck外围投注怕的事情。”“

I love Scripture's honesty!它直接承认有些东西很可怕。In fact,Scripture often predicts we will face much trouble and hardship in this life.

And nowhere is this more true than with our children.在生命的其他地方,我们有更重要的责任(永恒的灵魂);面对如此艰巨的挑战(罪恶的心,hostile world),and feel so inadequate and ineffective??

但我们不会害怕任何令人恐惧的事情。18luck外围投注我们要相信上帝。

Trusting God is not a one-新利18luckIM电竞牛time decision or something we can accomplish in a thirty-day challenge.我们必须为信任而战。有时我们必须每小时战斗,even on a moment-by-moment basis.Like raising children,growing in trust is a life-long effort.

但我们并不孤单。We have the Holy Spirit inside of us to guide us into all truth.We have our Sovereign Father ruling wisely and graciously over all.当我们失败的时候,我们有我们救主的公义。

很多事情都很可怕,but we have many更多相信上帝而不是害怕的理由。18luck外围投注

Every Event of Every Day

“我们身上发生的每一件事都表达了上帝对我们的爱,and comes to us for the furthering of God's purpose for us.因此,so far as we are concerned,上帝对我们的爱是神圣的,omnipotent love—at every moment and in every event of every day's life.即使我们看不到上帝交易的原因,we know that there is love in and behind them,and so we can rejoice always,即使,人道地说,事情不对劲。我们知道我们生活的真实故事,当知道的时候,will prove to be,正如赞美诗所说,“mercy from first to last"我们很满足。”“
