Listen to Yourself

On August 14, after I explained my frightening situation to my friend Fern, she sent me encouragement in my own words, from my own book--Heartfelt, 366 Devotions for Common Sense Living.
You wrote this, Brenda. I'm sending it back to you today so you will be encouraged to find faith in a fearful situation. Love and hugs, Fern.
August 14: It’s the ____Talking
Psalm 55:5-Fear and trembling have come upon me; horror and fright have overwhelmed me (AMP).
Forgive me if lately I am irate. It’s the ___talking. The ______grows power for a later attack. It waits for the instant that I turn my back. It’s the ________mocking. It is locking me into the fear that it brings. Driving me low each time my heart sings. It’s the _____stalking.
But when thoughts of Christ arise in my mind And freshly again, on his Word I’ve dined, then once more I’ll stand, believing his best, While entering his blessed, unfathomable rest; because now- Christ is talking.
Prayer: Lord, help us turn to you in our fear so that you may be our faith (Psalm 56:3). Amen.
