She Laughs Without Fear of the Future

She Laughs Without Fear of the Future

Hi Friend,

Do you ever find yourself worrying about tomorrow? Do you sometimes feel anxious and wonder what life has in store for you next week, month or even next year? Does fear keep you from celebrating what the future holds?

Hopefully you were intrigued by the title of this post, She Laughs Without Fear of the Future. Would you say that title describes you in any way?

I came across this Bible verse (below} in my daily reading and had to share it with you today.

She laughs without fear of the future.

She laughs without fear of the future.

I pray that as you read the words inside this pretty little graphic, you won’t simply say to yourself “well good for her … this woman who has it all together.”

Instead, my hope is that you will reflect on the words and receive the invitation to be this woman today!

I’m hoping you’ll glean a better understanding of what it means to be clothed in strength and dignity. To not only dream about a life of joy and laughter; but to experience it.

To be willing to replace any toxic fears of the future with unshakable faith in God.

Not only is this possible; it’s a choice. Your choice . And no one else can decide for you.

She is Clothed with Strength

A woman’s strength does not come from relying on her own limited abilities. Instead, her strength comes when she relies on the LORD’s infinite and unmatched abilities operating through her.

The LORD is my strength and shield. I trust Him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. Psalm 28:7

 

She is Clothed with Dignity

A woman’s dignity and honor is not woven together by her own victories. Instead, the dignity and honor she wears belongs to the LORD. She tells every generation about His greatness so that the nations will praise His name; not hers.

I will bring honor to Your name in every generation. Therefore, the nations will praise You forever and ever. Psalm 45:17

She Laughs Without Fear

A woman’s laughter is like a strand of priceless jewels around her neck as she relies on God’s strength and reveals God’s glory to others. Her fear of the future fades when she focuses on the LORD and His perfect, unlimited love for her.

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear …         1 John 4:18

Below is a short prayer I’ve written with you in mind. {Note: short prayers are just as effective as long prayers. 🙂 } If you know someone else who could use a little encouragement and prayer today, I’d love for you to share this post with them.

There are millions of women in this world who need to know that they too can be clothed with the strength, dignity and love of the LORD. When I share and you share we can make a difference!

Lord, help me to say “yes” to You in every situation. To rely on Your strength; not my own and to rejoice in Your glory. When fear comes knocking on the door of my heart; help me to remember that I don’t have to answer because Your perfect love for me has the power to distinguish any toxic fear in my life. Help me to be a woman who laughs without fear of the future because I know it is securely held in Your hands.  In Jesus’ Name, Amen

  1. Leah, I am always so amazed at God’s incredible timing in providing me with the right bible verses and words of comfort I need each day. Yesterday, I found out that my sister, an incredible woman of faith, has just been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. It has already spread to her liver. Her legs are in pain from blood clots. She is 51 with 2 beautiful children in high school. My 1st thoughts are that surely this can’t be. I am still speechless. Today, like every day, I wake up to start my day with my Proverbs 31 devotion. It is not sheer luck or coincidence or chance that the heading on the email is “when I see you in heaven”. It is nothing but the work of God’s hand that leads me to this blog, reminding me that this is God’s will and to Him will be all the glory. ThanK you, thank you, for your gift of putting this into perspective. Peace!

  2. I came across your blog after reading about your dad on today’s encouragement for women devotional,I was moved to read she laughed without fear of the future…if only you know how much you touched me…thank you so much Leah….im going to share this with all my friends…thank you again…

  4. Leah, thank you for sharing these truths from God’s Word! I especially was encouraged by Psalm 28:7. I desperately need God’s strength today!

  6. Thank you Leah for reminding and showing me what I am in Christ and that I have nothing to fear when Jesus is near and in control. I’m his girl. Amen

    • Judy, my prayer for you today is that you will remain in Christ’s love and allow His Word to remain in your heart, so that you can experience the fullness of joy. Blessings!
