Fear vs. Action

God tells the Israelites in 2 Chronicles 20:17,

“…Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the Lord will be with you.”

Idea: Focus on the purpose and you won’t have time to be discouraged.

Why am I just realizing this now? We’ve lived here for almost three years and I’ve been hiding behind the fear of being discouraged. Which, by the way, all the while, made me more discouraged. I am feeling a desire to pray for, no, with people for their situations. I need to have courage to do the Lord’s will…He will be with me! Who can stand against that?

Meanwhile, house hunting before it’s time to house hunt is fun but frustrating! Can someone turn that part of the internet off? We’re moving this summer and it would be nice to get some things done before the chaos starts…that way maybe the chaos wouldn’t be so bad. This will be our first time selling a house and then buying another one so the excitement/stress factor may reach unknown proportions…Hey, wait a minute “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged!” That seems like it should be my motto for right now.

Thanks to you two who’ve tagged my blog. I’m not quite sure what tagging means or does, but you said nice things . How did you find my blog? I get most of my technology knowledge from listening to talk radio and the news…with a soon-to-be-4 year old that’s all I can manage right now! When I transfered my website from a free host to Bravenet I thought I was going to have to personally hire a Bravenet guy to spend some time with me to set it all up. Like I wrote yesterday though, I’m just smart enough to get by in the technology world, and so right now it looks like it’s all working…and I still have most of my hair.

And God, can You please give us more of that unseasonably warm weather?
