Psalm 118:6

The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.
    What can mere mortals do to me? – Psalm 118:6

Dear Heavenly Father,

I have lost too much energy over fear and concerns about what other people could do to mess up my work, my family, or my very own life.  That’s why I love this verse.  Instead of comforting me with a crystal ball telling how things will work out, it simply reminds me that you are with me.  When you are with me, I can calm down and hand over the steering wheel to you.  You will take care of me even if others mean me harm.  I will rest in your presence and the calm assurance that you will work everything out for my good.  Now, with the reclaimed energy I was wasting by worrying, I will serve others as valiantly as I know how.  Thank you for being with me in my little place.
