When I came across that last sentence in my devotions this week, the words of a troubled woman came to mind. As I recall, she stood in the doorway of her house and told me, “I am a weak woman; I just pray for my children.”
What does it take to call upon the Lord and receive strength of soul, or a stout heart? Can others do this for you? Can I effectively petition the Lord on behalf of her?
I imagine that we have all experienced overwhelming fear. What moves you out of inaction into bold, empowering choices?
