He Is with You
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom should I be afraid? Psalm 27:1
When I am afraid, I can’t hear the Lord. My anxiety blocks out every good thing. It takes over my body. I tremble; I cannot sleep. My mind runs wild imagining the worst. There is no light or respite in fear. It’s a fog that overtakes me and I can’t see past the present moment. It is blinders that hide from me the many blessings I have been given. Gratitude dissolves. Hope disappears. It’s like quicksand. The more I struggle, the deeper I am entrenched. I’m like a terrified child who is sure this bad situation will not—cannot—end.
I must look to Jesus to find His outstretched hand, His comforting gaze, the movement of His Spirit. Alone, I’m drowning and I cannot swim. Through the clamor, these are the words I long to hear. Trust Me. Don’t be afraid. Rest in My arms today.
FAITH STEP: Look for Scriptures that talk about alleviating fear and worry. Comfort yourself with them today.
