free falling...

I never really thought of myself as a fearful person until I became a mother...


I have now found myself at times lying awake at night wondering these crazy "what-ifs" or being totally irrational in my worry. I know it is because now I have MORE to lose but there is a place of PEACE i can find in trusting God and not giving into fear and worry.
Mark has quoted this saying to me that goes something like this "Most of the things we worry about in life are never going to happen and the things that do won't change with worry."
The point being worry is pointless...
God has really put his finger on this in my life. I see how even my mothering is based at times on fear not really what is healthy or good for my kids. I want to be able to give my kids freedom to be a kid and to make mistakes and to be who they are created to be. To be able to do so i need to let go and free fall into God's grace and trust He loves my kids far more than I can imagine. It is a proccess and I know i have so much more to learn but I really want to get this in my heart.

So here's to trust. Here's to free falling.
Have a great Monday.
