I read this quote tonight,
and instantly thought of HOW true it is....
FAITH AND FEAR
IN THE SAME PLACE
AT THE SAME TIME.
There are alot of moments in my life where my
flesh creeps in and I get fearful, it might be worrying about money
or letting people down or about the simplest things...
yet it happens....time and time again. But, sometimes I need a slap in the face.....God has
EVERYTHING under control and who am I to second guess or doubt his plan for
my life, and doubt that he is in control of every minuscule detail. God has placed me in this moment in time, in this city, at this job, with specific people surrounding me for HIS divine plan....
why should I worry, when God has placed me here; he chose me.
I looked up the definitions of both....and they could not be FURTHER set apart....
