Guess Who??

The majority of our society seems to fear interracial relationships – there’s just a long history of it, I guess. And if I’m being honest, I’ve probably felt a little like this in the past, too. I went through so much change, when I became a Christian. It truly did begin to transform my entire life! There are things I can look back on now, and almost have to remind myself that..yep, that was actually you.

I feel like my primary job here is to work towards an eternal purpose, and one way I can do this is by promoting togetherness regardless of someone’s race. Specifically by making “other people” in my family feel welcome. Since I was really young, there’s been many different races that have become a part of our family. And now it’s almost just like unnoticeable, in a way.

Ultimately, the entire human species is important. Just because I’m white with blonde hair and blue eyes, doesn’t make me any more relevant than my cousin, who’s a beautiful tone of a mixture of color, with dark hair and eyes. Why is this so difficult for everyone else to comprehend? Isn’t there so much else to put our focus on?

I guess that’s why, when my family’s hosting a gathering, everyone knows they’re welcome. Like, it’d break my heart if someone thought I was excluding them for whatever reason! It simply isn’t in my nature. Not for something like their physical features. Nope, no way. If we’re talking about their choice of football teams however, then obviously that’s another story! We don’t eat at the same table as Eagles or Steelers fans..not in my presence, anyway! Kidding…I’m sure we could find something to feed even them. Ahem.

Fear: Fighting The Giant

I’m certain that I can’t be alone in facing a great deal of fear and trials, and how it seems to be on a regular basis. Struggling with finances, staying on track, health issues, normal home stuff, stress in my marriage – they all seem impossible to handle at times. And I overthink things..worrying, doubting.

First of all, wouldn’t it be nice to have a natural faith, and confidence, like children show? Rather than facing fears and taking control of worrying however, I typically try to cover it up, and pray it’ll just go away.

I also get these feelings like, I’m completely alone. It’s just another thing that scares me.

The truth is, trials won’t simply disappear. Usually, they’ll linger and keep getting bigger when I try to ignore them. I don’t have to divert my attention, however! It isn’t necessary.

What I must do is go win the battle! God will reassure me of this, when I’ve got doubts. When I begin to lose faith, He goes and doubles it.

Furthermore, there’s no fight that’s too big or small for Him. I can pour my heart out to Him, because He always listens.

This, too, shall pass. I just need to be ready to fight, right there alongside my God! Together, we’ll beat any giant..together, we can overcome fears.

Fear
I refuse to let fear eat me alive anymore.

Fear vs. Strength

Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in His mighty strength. Ephesians 6:10
