My mother, she carried me under her heart, loved me before I was born, took God’s hand and walked as through the “valley of the shadows” that I might live.
She bathed me when I was helpless, clothed me when I was naked, fed me when I was hungry, rocked me to sleep when I was sick, weary and broken hearted, read to me with the voice of an angel.
She held my hand when I learned to walk, suffered with me in sorrow, loved me when i couldn’t love myself, laughed with joy, glowed with my triumphs, and while I knelt at her side, she taught me how to pray.
Memorize and repeat God's promises to your self. .
Few disciplines alleviate fear like recalling the marvelous promises of God.
"Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil for thou art with me" (psalm 23:4 KJV).
'''I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die'" (John 11:25).
'''If go and prepare a place for you, I will corm back and take you to be with me that you also may hi where I am" (John 14:3).
"There is now no condemnation for those who an in Christ Jesus" (Romans 8:1).
"If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved" (Rom. 10:9).
It's amazing how just repeating God's promise, alleviates our fears and gives us a quiet heart. Trust Him completely, He cannot tell a lie!
Review what the Bible says will happen when you die .
Do you have the fear dying?
My wife works at the country waffle in Lindsay. Her name is Luana. When she works there in the morning I eat breakfast there. One day a man set down with me at my table and admits he's afraid of dying. admits he is terrified of dying. He said "I have a wonderful family life. I exercise, all those little things." Still, he laments he is constantly pushing against darker thoughts, especially related to mortality. He said, "Death is all I think about. There is not a day or really an hour that goes by that I don't think about death." A classic case of thanatophobia!
So let me share with you, what I shared with him.
What do you think is the most impressive memorial in Washington, D.C.? Our forefathers knew people quickly forget history, so they erected numerous monuments and statues to remind us of the price that was paid for our freedom.
Which is the most impressive to you? The towering Washington Monument? The stately Jefferson or Lincoln memorials?
