Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. - Joshua 1:9
Dear Heavenly Father,
I can learn to be strong and fight fear when I know you are with me in every situation. Your presence calms me because I know I am not by myself out there trying to figure out what to do. I'm glad to have your word to guide me and your promise to do lots of things behind the scene for me. Help me to rise up to face the tasks and challenging conversations today with faith and love and boldness born from the knowledge of your never ending presence in my life. Thank you for not abandoning me because of my sins. Grace helps me trust that I have your help in spite of how often I have failed you.
