Hi Beautiful OBS Friends! Kristy here again. This has been a crucial week for me. I have always been a worrier. It is something I still struggle with and having years and years of worry will choke the joy right out of you. Lately, God has been stirring surrender and trust in my soul.
The Lord is my light and my salvation —
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life —
of whom shall I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
No matter the risk or the consequence, I will put God first. I will love Him with all of my heart, soul and strength. I will love Him more than my husband Michael. I will love Him more than Kalee, Mackenzy or Emilee. I will love and seek Him first. How? I will constantly soak in His Word and Presence. Knowing that my prayers will not turn up void. Trusting in the unseen, the unheard, and the unfelt FIRST! Are you with me, moms?
Let me share a little about my stillborn daughter, Mackenzy.

I can’t wait to hear from you today. Will you please share with us? Choose one of the questions to answer. Let’s chat, friends:
- If you are dealing with fear today …. Identify and write down the fears you are facing. Then pray over each of these fears and ask God to help you do battle with those fears right now. Share some of your fears with us.
- Are you allowing false expectations to appear real in your life? Share.
- Read and recite Psalm 27:1. (See above or here: https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=ps+27%3A1&version=NIV) Have your index cards ready so you can say it aloud throughout your day. Do a word search with your Bible concordance to find a verse that speaks to you about fear. Share that verse with us. Here is one of my favorites:
Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand (Isaiah 41:10).
