She laughs without fear of the future...

I've been reflecting on this verse a lot lately. I think I used to be that person that would laugh without fear of the future. The future always seemed so exciting. There was always something to look forward to, and even if we didn't have it all figured out, I wasn't too worried about it. But over the past couple years something changed. Maybe it's because I'm a mom now...maybe it's because we have absolutely no plan...maybe it's because I feel like I'm not contributing enough to the family and it's somehow holding us back. I don't know exactly, but lately I have a lot of fear of the future. 

So I read this verse and I wonder...how can I be this woman? This woman who is strong and wise and fearless.  I keep trying to focus on God and his strength, because on my own I am very weak. I try to keep a good perspective...God has also been faithful in the past and He will continue to be faithful in the future.
