Sitting in my front room last week, I was overcome with fear. My reaction to fear is anger. I was fuming!

Two minutes before the phone rang, I told our children to go pray for their Daddy, and they did.

As I pace back and forth, I glance into the other room and there are five heads bowed, knees bent. 

The call came. 

I always miss the point. I am at getting the point.

I took note, but it wasn't until later on that day that it hit me...hard.

I told my children to pray for the answer we wanted and when it wasn't, I panicked. I failed.

 Did I just teach my children that when we get a different answer to our prayers than desired, that God isn't in control? I think I did. 

Good thing I have children who follow Christ to remind that He is in control. In fact my seventeen year old man child told me that God has a plan and I need to trust in Him. 

Whoever raised that kid needs an award. Just kidding it's all Jesus. 

During the following week God kept reminding me of His love and provision over my family. I am so ashamed and grateful that God Almighty the creator of the world would remind me that


I should have been along side my kids with knees bent, and I should have rejoiced when the answer was different because

 God is always good.

 When the cancer doesn't go away, when the bank repossesses, when the call comes. He is still good. 

I didn't stay in the Word much the week before and my focus was off of God. If I truly love Him, then my focus needs to stay on Him. Love is an action not a word...I preach that here at the S house often. You should come listen sometime...bring your tithe. kidding, again.

Francis Chan writes that "Worry and stress reek of arrogance". 

God can handle it, and He intends to do just that as soon as we give our burdens to Him.

Be strong and courageous; don't be terrified or afraid of them. For it is the LORD your God who goes with you; He will not leave you or forsake you." Deuteronomy 3:16
