He Is with You

Description

When you find yourself anxious and afraid, take Jesus' outstretched hand and be comforted by His loving gaze. 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.
