“When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.”
Psalm 94:19 (NIV)
I shared with you in Spoken from the Heart: Walking in Freedom how God had healed me from the fear of winter driving approximately two years ago now. Then, in Spoken from the Heart: God’s Joy Lasts a Lifetime I told how God healed me from depression, something I had lived with since childhood.
Each instance of healing occurred in a different way. I had lived with the fear of winter driving for approximately 17 years at the time God took it away. I just assumed it was my “normal” and didn’t expect that fear to ever change. While my prayer every morning was to invite God into all areas of my life, I don’t recall specifically asking God to heal that area for me, because as I stated, I figured it was something I had to live with. However, God hears all our prayers and I believe because I invited Him into all areas of my life, He chose to answer that prayer in order to work more completely in my life to heal other areas that needed attention as well.
