When I'm afraid I'll trust in you

Jan 16th
Every night when I put Luke to bed we sing a few songs together. Sunday night I sang the song: “When I am afraid I will trust in you, I will trust in you (2x); When I am afraid I will trust in you, in God whose word I praise.”
Then the very next morning in our morning Bible reading we continued our slow walk through the Psalms. We read as a family Psalm 56: “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?”
Little Luke looked at me with wide eyes – “You sang that song!”
God was reminding me (and him) not only that I can trust in him – but also that I hadn’t realized that I was actually living in a state of stressful fear – and that God had something better for me.
“God, remind me again and again – when I am afraid – you are there and I can trust you.”
