1. In the darkest valleys, it’s difficult to see the light. But trusting in He who created the light then shines into our dark moments to hold us close. Thanks Rachel for shining your light to assist us in finding His!

  2. Fear is the enemy’s way of distracting us from God. It is powerful, paralyzing and debilitating. That being said thankfully, the greater one lives in us.

      Fear is paralyzing, Rebecca. No wonder we are told so frequently in scripture to not be afraid.

  3. I have been enjoying your thoughts on prayer Rachel. Those moments when we feel God is not near reminds us of our dependence on Him. How foolish for us to do things on own own. It is His desire for us to continually call out to Him. How dare we ignore the opportunity to speak with our Savior. Such an honor and privilege to speak with Him. Thank you for sharing your wonderful insights. Have a fantastic weekend and may God bless you and yours!

  4. This is so good, Rachel. A wealth of scripture and encouragement. I love your encouragement to recognize fear is normal in a storm and to just tell God about it. One thing I realized recently about the storm story when Jesus calmed the waters is that Jesus left the disciples out on that boat in the storm for a while, even when He’d seen them. But then later he went to save and rescue them. He had everything under control.
