Have you ever just written out your fears? Have you ever sat down and written out your anxieties?
I did this with my oldest daughter recently on a set of stars (thx Buckhead Church for the “trust” activity!) and I listed out a few things that came top-of-mind:
- My family’s health
- My job
- Am I doing a good job as a dad
She listed out a few, including:
- When I’m sick and I have nightmares
The moment I wrote them out I felt better about them. Powerful. Such a simple activity, right? I sat down and talked with Roenne about hers and we had an incredibly healthy discussion about them and how we can encounter them.
Then we both decided to trust God for the results (Proverbs 3:5-6):
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make straight your paths.
Sounds like a plan.
