One of the topics in Streams in the Desert really spoke to me. When we pray we need to hold onto God's promises whether it be promises in the bible or those quiet assurances He gives us straight into our hearts. If we don't and we start to look at the problem we are praying for while we go on praying we are liable to pray ourselves out of faith! I realised this is what I had been doing. Well I straight away stopped praying in a panicky, anxious way and reminded myself of God's faithfulness and goodness and His promises to me. Faith immediately returned and grew :)
Here is a journal page I did with one of the quotes in the book:

I added the Tim Holtz Rays stencil over the quote:
At the Name of Jesus is a wonderful compilation with a daily verse from the bible, a name of Jesus and a commentary. Here is the page I read around the same time as I read the one above:
It was a double whammy!!! Anxiety and worry took a running jump and I haven't allowed them to return!
As you read this I pray that you too will allow Jesus to take every fear and burden of your life. He is able to do great things in you, for you, and through you, today and every day.
