So do not fear; for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right Hand. Isaiah 41:10 NIV
I’m afraid, Lord – this world is unpredictable, scary.
It feels so out of control.
You are with me – You never leave.
You hold all things together.
Peace is the promise.
I find rest in You, Lord.
The Name of the Lord is a fortified tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. Proverbs 18:10
I can’t see around the corner.
The future is bathed in shadows – certain uncertainty, the great unknown.
You are with me.
I am not dismayed.
You tell me not to be afraid or let my heart be troubled.
You overcame the world.
Nothing surprises you.
You never look away.
I cast my cares on the One who never fails.
Though the earth gives way, I fear not.
He is my ever present help in times of trouble.
His Spirit gives me power and love.
Power to love.
I keep my eyes on You, Lord.
I will not be shaken.
Perfect peace is where You keep me.
You answer my distress.
Your promise preserves.
Nothing separates perfect love.
You anchor my soul and make a way through the wilderness.
Your righteous right Hand upholds me.
