When Life Feels Scary

There has never been a day where God has not known of you. From the beginning of time, He knew about your today. He knew how you would feel and how you would need Him. He wants you to call out to Him.

God is your Daddy holding out His hands to you as you take your first steps. He knows you can do it, and He is there to pick you up and carry you when you fall.

God is your piano teacher. He wants to make music out of you and will take any shred of talent and make it beautiful. He sits on the bench beside you, smiling and enjoying what He hears. It is a song He has written, after all.

God is your coach who knows what you are capable of. He wants to teach you to trust your instincts and know that the voice in your head is His. He wants you to learn to work as a team with those around you. When you make a mistake, He immediately knows what it is and can give you gentle correction.

God is your driving instructor who patiently teaches you when to yield. He knows when to brake, when to turn, and when to just keep going straight. He has His hands right there and is ready to take over when you get scared and take your hands off the wheel.

God is your guidance counselor in life. He will always be here and will always listen when you are confused. When you thought your life would go one direction but everything suddenly feels wrong, He will show you the right path.

God is everything in one. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. He knows everything that has happened and everything that will happen. When you trust Him with your heart, He will guide your future.

When you are afraid, reach out to your Papa, your teacher, your coach, and your counselor. He won’t ever steer you wrong. He will take that burden of fear off you and give you a much lighter load. Let Him.

  1. Thanks for this encouragement. It is always good to remember that God is always with us, ready to guide us and help us. We just need to cry out to him.

  2. Sarah, i’m struggling so much at present with what life has presented to me. God seems so distant, everywhere I turn I feel blocked. I know I must just give everything up to God but I feel as if i’m wearing a smiling mask for everyone but when I get home, the mask comes off and I sink.

    Is this the right forum to be writing this? Just needed to reach out.

    1. Kathleen, my heart breaks for you. I know what it’s like to feel alone and feel like you have to pretend to be ok. But you don’t have to pretend. God knows your situation, and He probably put someone in your life to talk to. If you prefer talking to someone who isn’t close to you, I would be honored to listen. You can email me at intentionalspending3@gmail.com any time. I am praying for you, Kathleen!
