    Natasha you are so good with words! I needed this. Thank you.

  2. I just read something similar, purely out of coincidence. {Fear of man is a dangerous trap, but to trust in God means safety. Proverbs 29:25 TLB} My husband is a corrections’ officer and there’s a lot of people who hate him. I’ve been afraid for his safety many times. I’m also afraid sometimes for mine and my daughter’s safety. Our county is in a bad place financially and in transition. Many people are lashing out at the local law enforcement and have made death threats against some of them. It’s ugly and scary right now. We just came from the Navy a couple of years ago, so this is tough for me. My husband was in the military, but I came out with PTSD too. It’s so easy to fear, but God knows all our days and He’s given us a promise that He will never leave us or forsake us. I so need to rest in that, and in not fearing what man can do to us.

      Hmm… yes. Right now we’re in a vulnerable place where it feels like we’re dependent on other people, whom we don’t particularly trust, to have a positive outcome. But this has been my reminder. I am NOT actually dependent on them. God is the one in control, no matter how it looks in the present. My job is to listen to and follow Him. <3
