Where does my help come from?

I am a worrier by nature. A serious freak-out-all-of-the-time-over-everything kind of worrier. Worry comes and steals the joy in may of my days. It causes arguments with my husband and even cause me to be a not-so-nice mommy at times.

Money troubles are of course on the top of my list. Trying to get things for the baby, trying to get a vehicle fixed, trying to keep the lights on, keeping food in the fridge, ignoring bill collectors. It's something that haunts my mind every. second. of. the. day.

This is something that the Lord has dealing with me lately. He's been showing me in a huge way the He is truly the One in control at all times.

For example, the outpouring of blessings in regards to baby items has been astonishing! From a complete set of cloth diapers, to a Moby wrap, to socks and blankets-so many have reached out to fulfill that "baby items" need. And this is just the short list. We've been repeatedly blessed this month-over and over again in various ways. This of course had made me cry on occasion because I honestly was losing faith that people in general really cared about each other, or us.

How wrong I have been.

I am learning that the Lord still whispers to the hearts of those who serve Him, to guide them to a need they can meet. This is BEING the body of Christ. This is how we become Jesus to those around us. When we are filled with the love of Christ-it must be an automatic response to overflow onto others.

Man, we serve an awesome God, do we not?

Through my fear and doubt, the Almighty has pressed in and has shined brighter than the darkness I've allowed my mind to dwell in.

He's got this. I just need to let go.

"I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth." Psalm 121:1-2
