For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”
(2 Timothy 1:7, NKJ)

It is really hard not to fear the future.

As Makenzie gets bigger so do the hurdles that we have to overcome.

I try really hard to let tomorrow worry about itself but sometimes fear of tomorrow creeps up on me and my thoughts go to scary unknowns. I think the biggest ones are transportation and stairs. Silly right. Cake Walk... not so much!

First, we need a van to haul Makenzie and all of her stuff around in. Gone are the days of the nice compact 4 door. I used to dream of that day when my kids would grow up and I could go back to driving a cool little car. Nope.. no more. Not only does it have to be a van but a very specific van as there are only a few out there that can be modified if that need ever arises. So... gone are the days of choosing a car. After buying the van it will cost somewhere between $25,000 and $30,000 to modify it with tie downs and a ramp. SCARY!

Then there is the fact that there are stairs EVERY where in my house. There are 3 different step ups on the main level and all of the bedrooms are up a full flight of stairs. I am not sure how long I will be able to carry Makenzie up those stairs. I am guessing awhile but there I go... worrying about tomorrow! SCARY!!!!

I am not sure how to stop worrying because it seems to me like a person would have to start thinking about things like that. Not small issues! However we are told not to fear. I am trying!... really hard!

I pray that God will move his hand over Makenzie and she will walk and these worries will not be worries anymore! I know that God can and I continue to patiently wait!

Believe... Prayer Works!!!

Dear Heavenly Father,
In the midst of every trial we face in life, how good it is to know that we do not have to fear, but that we can face every situation with power and love and a sound mind. How we thank you, Lord, that you can give us the tools we need to overcome fear. Yet, Lord, there are times when we look at our situation and can become fearful concerning Makenzie's future. Lord, we ask that when fear or anxiety grips us, that you would minister to us in a deep way that would cause us to see the situation with a sound mind, and give us the ability to see your hand at work, even on the most difficult of days. Lord, we thank you that when we are feeling fearful, anxious, or uncertain that you will meet us where we are and minister your comfort and love to us, and that we would once again regain our hope for the future.
In Jesus’ Name,
