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.
