Made for another world

"If I discover within myself a desire which no experience in the world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world." C. S. Lewis

Sister to Sister: Fear

Welcome to Sister to Sister, a time every Thursday for Christian women to connect from the heart. Life is challenging and beautiful, most importantly it's meant to be shared. I've been inspired by many women, including you! Hearing stories of hope in hard times, joy in the every day, and freedom from fear lifts my heart!

Sister to Sister is the opportunity for you to write words of truth and honesty that bring encouragement to other sisters. It may be a personal story, a lesson God is teaching, or scripture you'd like to share. Be creative, be expressive, be real.

"He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love." Ephesians 4:16

Here are the guidelines:

* Every week I'll give us a word to focus on.

* Try to keep your post under 500 words. 

* Link up bellow and spread the love! Visit other sister's posts and let them know what their words mean to you!

Are you ready? Join me this week in inspiring other women with your thoughts on: 

I've been thinking lately about all of the what ifs in my life. If I play all of the what ifs out to their possible conclusion then what? What if my husband never gets a job, what if my son doesn't like his new teacher, what if I really do have a chronic illness, what if I never have my own house, what if my novel is never published, what if so-and-so doesn't like me, what if no one joins this blog hop, what if? What are what ifs other than fear?

There are so many things in life to be afraid of if we let ourselves. As I thought about my what ifs, my fears, I realized that even if one or all of them came true it wouldn't change what's most important. That "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells." Psalm 46:1-4

God himself is our refuge even when it feels like the very ground we're standing on is shaking. "The city of God, where the Most High dwells," for those who trust in Jesus, is our final destination, our guarantee. All of my what ifs can't take that away, can't even touch it.

How about you? Is the ground rolling beneath you, do you struggle at times to regain your footing? Do you question yourself or your circumstances? Turn your eyes to Jesus, he is your refuge, he is present and the future he has prepared for you is beyond your comprehension!
