Overcoming My Fear

The Lord has called me to be a wife, a mother, a teacher, and a disciple for Him. With this calling he will equip me with all I need to be the wise woman who builds up her house and the Lords house.

Why is it then that I struggle with the fear of failure in the areas of being a wise teacher and being a disciple for him. Why do I give into the lies of the enemy that I am not equipped or intelligent enough to fulfill my calling.

Often the Lord has to remind me that he has entrusted these beautiful children into my hands.
He trusts me to train up my children in the way they should go. He gives me these seedlings to plant by the stream of water, to nurture, love, and to help shape into a strong and healthy tree that will bear much good fruit. All I have to do is trust in my Teacher, my Father,
and to follow the example of his life while he was here on this earth. It is through his Word that I will obtain all the wisdom I will need in this life.

Today I remind myself that I am beautifully and wonderfully made in his image. Today I will trust in my Lord that he will equip me and mold me into a wise and noble woman. He will reach out his hand and touch my mouth and put his words in my mouth that are needed to teach and disciple my children.

"Ah, Sovereign Lord, I said, "I do not know how to speak; I am only a child." But the Lord said to me, "Do not say, "I am only a child.' You must go to everyone I send you to and say whatever I command you. Do not be afraid of them, for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the Lord. Then the Lord reached out his hand and touched my mouth and said to me, "Now, I have put my words in your mouth." Jeremiah 1:6-9
