There are times when doubts creep into my mind, when fear and anxiety get the best of me. I start to panic and fear and wonder what the future is going to hold. In those moments, I feel that it is all on me. And that is overwhelming.
One night when I was beginning to worry a thought came over me. God will be with me through anything.
God will be with me through anything.
It was a simple thought, one that I should have known all along. But just thinking it then, knowing that no matter what I will face in the future God will guide me through it, calmed me.
Guide me in your truth and teach me, for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in you all day long.
I don’t have to be afraid for tomorrow because God is already there. He knows what is going to happen, and he will take care of me.
Life isn’t always going to be easy. It will be far from perfect. But God is going to hold my hand through everything, and I will be okay because of that. Is there anything more comforting than knowing that?
Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you."
