As I was sitting there, I was thinking about what my mask is. One of the biggest for me is fear and worry. The Lord has been so gracious to me. He has allowed me 4 healthy children, a loving husband, a nice house, a loving family, my own health, my husbands good job so I can stay home, wonderful friends, a great church, and much more!
I look at this life God has given me and I think, "all I have been giving Him in return is fear and worry!" What thanks is that? God has been working in my life with this the last month and then our MOPS meeting really brought it into perspective! I have to refocus my thoughts every day, every hour, every minute! Phil 4:8 is a verse I cling to for help in this area; "Finally brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of a good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy-meditate on these things." I found a picture at Hobby Lobby with this verse on it. I hung it on my "doorpost" so I can remember to take off my mask of fear!
