Jesus. Travel. Lifestyle.

My latest enemy

The nature of my husband's job lends itself to frequent trips and my extroverted people loving self struggles a bit, particularly in our non subdivision country home. Let's just say late at night my mind becomes consumed with ridiculousness like kidnapping, burglary, and the such. Seriously how did this happen? When you've been giving much like two beautiful, crazy, hyper boys you can begin to fear much, but I MUST remember ultimately they are gifts from the Lord and belong to Him. Here's some scripture for battle in combating fear.

"Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of God, and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. They truimph over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony."
Revelation 12:10-11


  1. So good to have a God who is over all! Thanks for the inspiring message, I'm enjoying them!

  2. 1. Love your blog! Please keep up the good work!
    2. My husband travels as well and here's a fav verse of mine: '(She) will have no fear of bad news; (her) heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord' Psalm 122:7

  3. I've been lurking around your blog for ages and finally decided to leave a comment. I used to struggle with near paralyzing fear when my hubby would travel. Mercifully, God has helped me overcome my fear and I am happy to say that I sleep like a baby whenever my hubby is away.

    My favorite verse to recite when I'm freaked out at night... "I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety." Psalms 4:8

  4. I stumbled onto your blog a while ago, but I don't think I ever commented. I just wanted to say thanks for this post. I'm home alone this evening, the roads are too icy to go anywhere, and it's easy to feel lonely and overwhelmed alone in the cold house. God used this post to cheer me up a little. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Oh thank you so much for sharing! My husband is an EMT and works nights too. The other night i called him and kept him on the phone as I checked the downstairs with a baseball bat after hearing a noise. I love to recite scripture and then a peace does come over me. We are so blessed that we are never alone. Your sharing this was such a comfort to me!
