Once Upon A Time

I remember once upon a time when I was a child I would have terrible boxing matches with the air, but my vivid nightmares had me wondering what I was actually fighting. Afraid to fall asleep most times because of this I finally had a weapon that I could use.

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. (I John 4:4 NKJV)

I would say this to myself when I was scared, when I was feeling lonely, and when I needed my fathers comfort. I remember the courage it gave me as a child and I know it still stands true even today, basements still creep me out, and I still use this in situations that creep me out. It’s just a wonderful feeling of calmness and peace that this single verse gives me that I felt it was worthy to mention on my blog.

  1. For me it was, “God send your angels to watch over me.” It’s based on a verse but I can’t remember the reference right off hand.

    Funny how we never really grow up. We still need that comfort sometimes even as grown adults. The burden is just greater because we are now the “protectors” instead of our parents.

  2. For me it’s the Lord’s Prayer and the Serenity Prayer. I feel calm when I recite the Lord’s Prayer and it gives me a sense of peace. It’s my favorite prayer, not that I know that many but it always makes me feel better.
